So Close, Yet So Far

Our garden is just on the other side of the fence from the goat yard.

Nutmeg, aka Rotunda, has been beside herself this afternoon trying to get at the bounty just beyond her reach.

I think she’s thinking about digging a tunnel!

    Just read in a Mother Earth News e-mail about a “chicken moat”, two wire fences running parallel to each other around a garden that allows the chickies to run between them and eat bugs and weeds without getting into the garden. Wonder if it would work for round little goats?

    Watch out, she may bribe Boomer to dig a tunnel for her. “Want a cookie, Boomer?”

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia.
