The Commander finally got around to tilling the garden this evening in hopes that we will get the planting done this weekend. The soil looks better than last year, we have been adding goat droppings and hay to the mix. The fence is an attempt to keep out the rabbits, deer, goats, bunnies, etc... We not only have every carnivorous predator know to earth prowling our lands hoping to eat our goats, chickens, and sheep, but we also apparently have every herbivore predator trying to get at our garden vegetables as well!
The rhubarb grows great every year for whatever reason, no amount of frost, cool weather, or plain old neglect seems to effect its survival. If only it could give the other plants lessons.
These were sent to us by one of the Commanders sisters, we find her most recent attempt a humor more successful than previous ploys that included the mailing of "stuffed mice"!
I am an Ocicat. My duties include; security (rodents), counter intelligence (predators), infiltration (sneaking) and night surveillance.
I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
