The kids at 1840 Farm are growing bigger every day (both the goat and human variety)!
The three Nigerian Dwarf goat kids are spending their days eating, sleeping, and playing in the sunshine. They are just beginning to nibble hay with their mother and investigate the outside world. As you can see, they enjoy a lot of personal attention as well and love to be rocked every morning and evening.
If I had known how enjoyable it was to have baby goats on the farm, I might have decided to start our home dairy years ago!
What can you do when your youngest child outgrows his pair of Wellingtons? Easy. Use one as a container for a wildflower bouquet. Or would that be a bootquet? I’m not sure. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
Not entirely wordless, but completely celebratory. The first cherry tomatoes of 2011 are here! Yes, they are growing in the plant window in the kitchen instead of outside in our garden. No, we don’t care.
