It has finally cooled off over here. The heat wave came during the time of month that we have lots of errands to run. So although were "out" in the heat, we weren't outside actually playing. We had a cold front move in yesterday and that made it possible to get out and play!
Behind the chickens you can see the herb garden. The one with basically nothing growing in it. Although the weeds haven't come back in, we also haven't had any luck growing herbs. Our sunflowers still sit at 6 inches tall....with no flowers. The green onions never came up. The cats got the catnip. And our oregano and basil are dying. Sigh.
In other news we got around to getting our male goats tied out in our side yard. Lots, and lots of greens for them! We were hoping it was going to help with the nasty taste of our goat milk. Nope. I had the idea of milking each goat into a separate container. Bingo! Only one of the three has the problem. Unfortunately at the moment we don't know why her milk tastes so yucky. They all eat the same food. A friend of mine says it could be stress. This particular goat is lowest on the totem pole. I have to find a way to separate her (with a companion) from the others to see if that helps things. In the mean time this goat's milk goes to the dogs, or cats, or both :-) They love it!!!
