What to say, what to say

The stanchion is not yet built. But, Patch has become more comfortable with us, and we or I should say my husband, can milk her without the stanchion. I however am still getting kicked.

Mama should be in heat according to the charts, but I have not seen any mounting from Lott.

Winter garden time!

Today I will be tilling up the ground. You need a north side wind block and south side sun. Got that behind my house. Till it and pluck out any roots clumps. Cover with a black landscape tarp and wait a few days, allowing the soil to warm up a bit more. I'll tell you the rest later.

Not sure what else to tell you. You have all been rather quiet, but I see you.

I wish I could afford to send you a camera. You are a talented writer, but I like when you can take photos. I want to see Lott and the new goat action. :-)

I am digging today, too.

I am moving goats around today. Have 2 dried off that will be moved to the maturnity pen. A little early as they aren't due till Jan but they were so drained after their last kidding I want to keep them strong and healthy for and after this one. Moved the dwarf bucklings and they are happy running around. Keep working with your milk goat. It will get easier and she will get use to your hands and voice and just stand there. I don't lock the heads of my milkers in as they are use to me. William who isn't home to milk much has to lock in a couple or they want to get out or kick at him. Have a great weekend!

I can't wait to hear more about the winter garden. Sounds great!

My husband wants to plant some turnip green seeds, and I read him what you said about your winter garden. Looking forward to more.

I've been meaning to ask, what are you doing with that sheep in your headliner pic? Are you shearing it? And, is that you?

H'lo Phelan. You sure do stay busy. I've never kept the company of goats or I look forward following along. Have a great weekend.

Phelan you need to train one of those cows to be your "tiller". Then no matter how little gas there is---you can till :-D

I know, I know! Easier said than done right? :-D
