You heard right folks, we are finally going to get out doelings this weekend! I'm so excited!!!!! I hope I can be a good goat farmer. After reading about how a sick goat is a dead goat, I'm kinda nervous. What if I don't take good enough care of them? What if they get into some poisonous weeds? What if coyotes get them? Oh, I'm making myself even more nervous. I had better stop thinking about it.
Hubby went back to work Sunday. Boooooo! Oh well, I had better look on the bright side, at least the bills are starting to get paid. Oh, and I get the bed to myself. YEA!!!! (To all of you girls out there that sleep with your husbands, you know what I'm talking about.Wink)
Our garden is starting to really look good. Four rows of beans, two rows of onions,over 80 tomato plants,(some that I have never even heard of before. I mean, come on, a WHITE tomato?lol)one row of beats, peppers,squash,zucchini, corn, potatoes(that aren't going to make it) and cucumbers. Wow! That's a bunch of veggies. Next year we plan on having our garden in a different place. Hopefully it will be bigger and laid out better. We shall see. (Am I the only one who plans on doing something, and then when the time comes to do it, there is no way that it is going to get done? hehehehe.)
I asked the question last week on weather you staked your tomatoes or not. Well, we have done both. When we don't stake them, they touch the ground and start rotting sooner. When we DO stake our tomatoes, the wind whips them really good and they break off where they have been tied. I'm not sure what we are going to do this year. Not yet anyway. We still have a while. I probably wont have to worry about it. The goats will get out and eat them. LOL!!!!
Another thing that I have been doing, is late spring cleaning of the house. There was more dirt in here than in the garden. But when you live in an old house that once was used for storing hay, what can you expect. At least it is looking like it's cleaner.
I've been practicing on the fiddle a little too. I'm getting better if I do say so myself. It's either that, or the dogs are going def. :) I just wish I had some music to play with. I can play with my Dad and uncles, but that only happens every so often. Not enough for a beginner like me. Believe me. Just ask the dogs.
Well, I had better get back to more cleaning. It just never ends.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, house cleaner and soon to be goat farmer.
