Look closely and you’ll see happy goats chomping away. These are leftovers from our corn, sunflower, and winter squash pasture. Even though the wet spring and summer left was a challenge to grow crops, it proved beneficial in the end.
The goats, birds, chickens, turkeys and geese have been cleaning up. Riping down corn stalks and finishing up sunflower seeds. It’s already got me thinking about next years plantings. Cornstalks seem to be the most desirable but the seed heads on the sunflowers run a close second. Maybe next year I will add amaranth and milo to the mix.
