Around the homestead
My flooded garden is recovering ☺ Sprouts and sunflowers are coming up and peppers are coming on! Just harvested my first bunch of strawberries (delish). I had to share some with roly poly's and grasshoppers though, grrr! Pickled some eggs :/ I have never tried those before, so this should be interesting. I'm attempting to crochet a huge market bag, it will take awhile since I don't have much down time. I'm reading the book Goat Song and soo far I like it. It's a story of a couples journey with goats. It's like reading my own story but I think theirs ends with a successful cheese business.
Baby goat is my little love. I had him disbudded Saturday. The only place that could do it was the same vets that screwed up Wilma's delivery, so I was nervous. He looked like an alien for a couple days with silver nubs on his head, but he's doing great. Little goat is also getting out of the pen. I find him next to it tormenting his poor mother to death! Mama hen and babies are mingling with the flock. It's amazing to see those little tiny's running with the big chickens. They are tough little boogers. My girls only have two more days of school before summer break. I'm really looking forward to this summer! Hope everyone had a great Mothers Day!
