Galahad (more commonly known as “You Little Weasel” or simply “Pesky”) meeting the rest of the herd for the first time, with mama Lulu keeping watch
Galahad introducing himself to cousin Isis (again, with mama Lulu keeping a close eye on things)
Sorry for the blurry image, but I love this shot… and goats love Peter!
Broodies, broodies everywhere… (The record so far was seven hens broody – i.e., wanting to hatch eggs, and therefore not laying – at the same time. I did give in and give eggs to two of them, one in each coop… 1-1/2 weeks until we have chicks!)
Nettle harvest, from a very small patch by the river – enough for a nice helping of steamed nettles for each of us with dinner! (The nettles were so tasty, I can’t even remember what the main course was…) I’m hoping to get one or two more meals from this patch before they get too large and tough.
Our first spring salad! Lettuce from the farmer’s market, volunteer arugula, spearmint and chives from our garden, wild dandelion leaves, oxeye daisy leaves (so sweet!) and purple deadnettle tops, and wood sorrel from the woodsy area by the river… eating this salad, my body sang!
Our beautiful eggs, from our beautiful hens… these are a staple in our diet almost year-round

Love those Spring Greens…..
yes! my body is craving the spring greens after a winter of mostly kale!
(don’t get me wrong – i love kale and it grows so well here, but oh my, those fresh young spring greens are the best!)
Peter-the goat whisperer.
ha! he totally is!
I live for these glimpses into your extraordinary life.
oh, thank you, victoria!
though it’s not so much extraordinary as it is very, very ordinary
our days are filled with very ordinary things…
