Goats in the Garden

8 Sep

Lately, I’ve had a hard time with the three kids up north with Harley.

Antigone

A combination of the copper issues and horrible weather has lead to some pretty nasty diarrhea.

It’s a good thing Pepto Bismol tastes yummy.

Pluto

They are improving, so I decided that I’d give them a fresh browsing area.  Since I had already put panels across the yard to keep the dog out of my garden, I decided to let these few goats in to eat it down.

It didn’t take long for them to start eating the weeds and shrubs after I opened the panel.

Anubis

I did pick some tomatoes and okra before I let them in.

I might still get a bit more before they eat it all down.  There’s quite a bit of grass and shrubs along with garden plants.

I’m hoping they start with the stupid morning glories.

There should be enough here to keep them happy for a while.
