Sunset on the farmLast summer we had a few black walnut trees cut down on the farm. Where they were located they would have eventually had to be cut down anyway so we decided to go ahead and have it done. The little bit of extra money from the trees really helped out at the time too. The down side is we were left with two large brush piles in the goat pasture that need to be cleaned up still. Most of it will be used as firewood as soon as some extra time can be found to cut it up and stack it. Until then, the goats are having a grand time testing their agility as they climb on the limbs and play "king of the brush pile".
These two Boer kids are having a good time playing on the tree limbs. The two larger goats behind them are the yearlings "Cherry" and "Blackberry". (You have to look close to see Blackberry after the sun goes down like this.)
A young Black headed Boer buckling holds still long enough for me to actually get a picture. This is one of Nifty's kids. Nifty is the deep sleeper that almost gave me a heart attack one morning.
Trouble's daughter Annie is really starting to look like her mom!The birdhouse gourds and other plants were not doing well in the house so what did not get planted yesterday, I went ahead and set outside in their pots. I will plant the rest of the gourds tomorrow. I am using an old cattle panel as a trellis, it is not the prettiest thing but it was free and a good way to recycle an old, bent cattle panel into something useful again. By summer it will be covered up by the plants anyway, hopefully!
