I grow kale everywhere. Outside in the garden. Outside in the front garden. In the greenhouse (read: ugly hoop house in the front of our yard.) Inside to get a jump on kale starts when the greenhouse is full. It's pretty much an insatiable love for kale chips.
5# of kale. Phase 1: Harvest the kale from the plants. Go for the outermost leaves
and use scissors for easy leaf cutting.
The goats cleared out almost all the blackberries from their paddock and we are looking at fencing off a second area that is overrun in salmon and blackberries as well.
Of course as they eat away the foliage we get the pleasure of uncovering more yard decor. I haven't figured out just how people dump things on any land--let alone their own. Instead of feeling ownership over our property (well, let's be honest our mortgage company own most of it anyhow), I mostly feel responsibility. Like I should leave it no worse than I receive it--preferably better. I want to nurture it so it continues to give back to me and anyone else who ends up here.
Sometimes things look so neat and tidy until I pull back some of the ground cover and then WHAM!
Lula Mae, Chloe and December had a male visitor last month in hopes of bringing goat babies into the world early this fall. Davinci came and left, but hopefully he left a little of his genetic material behind to become his legacy.
Lula (see later in this post to see how much December looks like her!)
