What's new in the garden?

I have been so focused on my goat families that my garden has been somewhat forgotten.  Not really. All the spring work has been done and now I just have to water, sit back and enjoy the harvest.  This year I have a few new stars:  allium blossoms, a Grand Canyon Sunset iris and cherries!!!!

Goat Babies- 1 month old

Here's a new video of the goat babies leaping and jumping with twists added in.  They are so darn cute I can't stand it.  Iris is a beautiful little goat who loves to jump and twist the most.  Willow has a mother who is too protective but when she gets away she is so sweet and loving.  Jack.  Oh my Jack has had a tough couple of weeks.  His disbudding of his horns did not go well.  He has been healing well with lots of goat doctoring which he hates.  I think he's going to make it. I start and end my day with these little guys.  It is the best.  On Saturdays I collect my milk and start making cheese.  This week it was chèvre and yogurt.  Life is good on the farm here in Denver

Let summer begin!

Well Denver has had 6 days straight of afternoon thunderstorms which have included lots of hail, lightening and even tornados.  The weather has played havoc with the garden, the roads and Ella's soccer tournament BUT:  It is Memorial Day and the beginning of summer.  No rain expected today just lots of sunshine.  A good day for playing, grilling, thanks for those who have kept our country free and ICE CREAM!

Goat babies, 2 weeks old


Two weeks old and quite frisky.  The mamas are willing (?) to share their milk and I made lavender ice cream with it yesterday.  Life is good on the farm
