I just love summer. Getting lots of goodies out of the garden. Peas, lettuce, spinach, potatoes, parsnips,
carrots and green beans so far. Tomatoes, peppers and squash are just starting to ripen, stop by and you'll be stuck taking
produce home, you've been warned.
A few goats are leaving this week. Calvin and Allie are
going to live with my Aunt. Katie deemed Auntie's house as acceptable for Allie. Calvin is taking up much needed barn space
and he eats as much as a horse. Maggie's new owners will be picking her up this week. She is going to keep another Alpine
We broke ground on an outdoor pizza/bread oven. It's a project that jumped
to the front of the list after my brother gave me tons (literally) of beautiful rock. Of course, my idea for a little oven
has turned into a mammoth project involving heavy equipment, rebar and concrete. (Bob can't stand to use a shovel). "It's
no use having this equipment and letting it just sit in the barn". It will be really neat when it's all done.
Pizza at my house Saturday night!
