Around the Homestead

Today is one of those amazing days where you don't want to be inside for even a minute.
The air is warm, in the seventies and there is a gorgeous contrast of colors with the evergreens, the browns of the bare branches, the yellows from the leaves still hanging on, and the bright blue sky.

I have been digging up new garden areas.  Loading up and dumping compost.  Thankful for our animals that provide the nutrients for the soil which in turn provides food for our family. 
We are planning a flower cutting garden for next year, perhaps even selling bouquets. Sarah is wanting to work on this with me.

The most exciting news around here has been what is going on with the goats.  Dante is finally in rut and Sparky is in heat!  Babies in March?  Milk in March?  We are hoping so.
It has been a long wait.

  1. Tonya, I can appreciate the exciting news of fresh spring goat milk!!!! I dream of that one day, too...but first we need more fenceing. Always, the fenceing! It is lovely to see a peek of your home...so beautiful. These precious golden autumn days...I wish they'd last longer. Such a wonderful and busy time of year!
