Rogue Goats and a Garden Update
The seeds are sprouting and the starter plants are well rooted - we've got a few more tomato plants and sweet potatoes to put in the ground.
We're trying new trellises, pumpkins, strawberries, and kohlrabi. The old reliables are also in place - heaps of lettuces (spinach, red romaine, mesclun mix), cucumbers, broccoli, carrots, beets, zukes, beans, kale, cabbage, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, and corn. Our raspberry patch is looking a little sad, but we'll see where it goes given a little more time.
The goats broke out of the pen last week and ate a good number of the lettuces and kale plants. Note to self - test fence - spring is an inopportune time for rogue goats.
