Blue Jay Way

There's so much going on lately. We bought a billy goat. His name is Zappa. He's a Boer billy. We were just going to buy some more goats to help the three girls with brush control. Then we thought well why not just get a billy. The goats are doing a most excellent job eating the brush down. They really go crazy over it. The weather here has been perfect! Spring is a beautiful time of year here on the farm. My favorite time is late in the afternoon around dusk. The garden is doing great! This morning I harvested French breakfast radishes and baby kale. About the kale. I direct seeded the kale. Well when you direct seed just about anything you need to thin it. Well if you let the kale or say radishes get big enough you can harvest the thinnings. Spring is not yet over and planning for summer is under way. Tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, squash, beans, and watermelons have been seeded into trays.
