Self-Serve

10 Dec

The goats are still going out to pasture to eat.

Even though we’ve had snow, none of it has stuck long.

They also enjoy napping out there in the grass rather than on the frozen bumpy barnyard.

I’m glad they can still get to the grass because it means I don’t have to hay them yet.

That means chores are still pretty easy.

Tony, Harley, and Anubis

I am only haying the two little girls and the group up north.

Fall Scenes

20 Oct

Here’s some random shots from around the farm.

Buster and Aurora

Fionn and girls

My sister sent me pie pumpkins. I think I have an idea for something new and delicious!

It is looking like fall.  Then last Sunday, this happened.

Our first snow!

Cinnamon and Victoria

I am not ready for winter.  Please, let me enjoy fall for a while yet.

Blooming

11 Aug

I’ve had too many yard goats and dogs over the years for my flower beds to, well, exist anymore.  I have two mallow plants growing, and they are considered invasive in some places.

I like their bright color, and they will bloom late into the fall.  It takes a hard frost to stop them.

I still have a lot of surprise lilies.

They’re another favorite.

Even if my okra didn’t produce yummy pods to eat, the flowers are pretty.

I have one or two squash vines that have so far escaped death by squash vine borer.

That’s about all that’s blooming around here.
