Woo Hoo . . . spring is here

I have been busy with other things and I have not been posting. Shame on me. I have some tomatoes started, I will buy some early girls and better boys later.

I started getting the site ready. I moved the tarp and the weeds are really bad. I don't want to mow back there as there is wood and rocks that are hard to see. So I am using an alternative mowing method.
Unfortunately they like all animals, quick changes in their diet is not good for their tummy so they each went out in pairs for 30 min. I'll do the same thing tomorrow and hopefully for the rest of the week I can get this area trimmed down. I have to put the bales out by May 1 so I can water for 10 days before I start planting. Planting date here is Wisconsin is usually May 15.


  1. Awww goats are the cutest little mowers lol. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I am enjoying checking your out. I am interested to see this straw bale garden, I have never heard of that before!

  2. Your goats are precious! I have sheep, too, but I prefer my goats so much more. I wish I could loan you my goats, sheep and llamas. They'd have that garden plot picked clean for you within a day or two....just like they've done to their paddock. Looks like a moonscape in there. gah!

    I'm looking forward to how your strawbale garden comes along. I want to finally try my hand at starting a garden this year. It's nice to know you're start date is late like ours is, too.
