Goat Camo

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.



2010 Fall Harvest


Sun Loving Sunflowers

Roasting Green Chilies

The 2010 fall harvest was great.  We enjoyed growing our new corn, giant pumpkins, amaranth, & milo. There was also plenty of old favorites with tomatoes, onions, green beens, sunflowers, cucumber. Let’s not forget that we always plant too much zucchini and  yellow squash. We harvest more green chilies every this season. Look forward to our spring planting.
