It's Raining ..................................

and I'm soooo happy ..................... it's been very dry here during April and most of May. I haven't planted the main garden because it's been so dry , so hopefully now we can get some beans , corn and tomatoes in the ground as soon as it dries up a bit. We really need to dig a small pond , so we'll have a way to irrigate the garden.The garlic looks like it's ready to be dug , but it won't be as big as the past few years , due to no rain.

Saturday , my oldest daughter and I took the grands to the lake. They enjoyed the water , it was a beautiful day. I didn't take any pics , afraid I would get sand in my camera and I really didn't have time with 3 toddlers in the water (LOL).

The goats spent their first night in the new goat shed Saturday night , they weren't to thrilled. They cried liked babies when I left them to come to the house around dark. I went back later to check on them and they had pushed the hay cart out and snuggled up behind it and settled down.

The chickens had to enjoy their breakfast inside today since it was raining. They had sunflowers along with their feed as a special treat.

Hope Your weekend was Wonderful !!

~ Be Blessed ~

Those goats are so cute!!

Goat cheese will be nice,
to learn how to make.

I am hoping to try and
make yogurt this week,
for the first time.

It is raining here too.

It's been dry here also for the past couple of months. Suppose to get rain tomorrow. Hard to imagine my baby chicks will get as big as your hens. Love the goat picture.
