Goats in the Garden

8 Sep

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


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.


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.


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.

    Hello, I hope the goats are all feeling better now. They are so cute! My hubby would love to have them here to eat our weeds. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and have a great new week!

      Your hubby would probably be disappointed. They go for the flowers and trees and shrubs before anything else. They are good for clearing underbrush, but I can’t ever recommend them for yards.

    I made the mistake of planting morning glories . . once. I pulled morning glories sprouts out of the flower beds and rock paths for the next 10 years! Mmmm okra and tomatoes fresh from the garden.

      These morning glories were not invited. I don’t know where they came from.

    Don’t let them eat seeds from morning glories. Not sure if the flowers have gone to seed yet. They are hallucinogenic and would be quite poisonous for the little ones.
