Just posting some happy snaps to distract our attention away from all that’s dying in the garden. And the fact that the hens have mostly stopped laying, our oldest goat is looking dangerously thin, the grass has turned crispy, and there’s no end in sight.
Still, the kids are growing like weeds.
The birds and the bees are still doing their thing while we can’t manage to stay outside past 11 am.
Unfortunately, so are the ants. The leaf-cutters are slowly destroying our young fruit trees. Only the more mature pear is escaping their attack.
Plants are simply amazing. The purslane and arugula are growing fine and make a great pesto. The sweet potato vines are a goat favorite, the okra’s just coming in, the peppers and watermelons are still hanging in there.
The zucchini hasn’t given up either, and somehow we still have broccoli that’s not bitter.
Just as the old cucumbers got bitter, the new volunteer is producing like crazy. Not too shabby! 😁
