I Miss My Herb Garden

13 Aug

I really do miss my herb garden.  It used to be along the edge of my garden when it was in my yard.  Now that whole area is part of my north paddock where the little girls are weaned.

Even before I did that, the herb garden had been pretty much killed off.  Part of it was by years of too much and too little rain.  By the way, we’re in drought again right now.

Back in it’s second year, when it was still in good shape.

Anyhow, back to the herb garden.  It was also further decimated by yard goats.

Dogs have also been hard on it.

I did find a few remaining plants out there this past week.

I’m trying to figure out where I can start an herb garden over again.  I’m dreaming of strawberries and oregano and sage and rhubarb and…

Myson is a big goat–he’s actually the tallest on the farm.

Here he is with one of the littlest goats, Kate.

Moose is the biggest goat if you go by weight.  That also makes him the biggest wether.

Although, Blaze looks like she might be the biggest around.

Popcorn is fully a wether now, after the vet finished removing his man parts.  He is my littlest wether right now.

Although, after he finishes growing up, Pluto will be my littlest again.

As for cute, they are pretty much all a tie.
