monday's mountain musings
This past week I planted more onion sets, more peas, lettuce, radishes, spinach, some carrots, collard and beets.Today i moved the container plants i have had in the gh out in to the hot tub. If it gets too cold out I can just run a plastic sheet over the hoops and turn it into an insta-greeh house. This gives me a bit more room in the gh as soonly more babies from the house will be moved down there. My peas and lettuce in the gh are now sprouting nicely as are my experimental tomatoes, cukes and zooks in the house. I got the potatoes chitting today for a St. Pat's day planting.
Today our last doe kidded and gave us another buckling. This gives us 5 live kids for the year. All will probably be sold once they are weaning age as will a few of our does. We are going to go with just three goats from here on out as this will make us nearly sustainable with their feed needs.
Here is a bit of video from when I discovered Abby had kidded today. I was intending to bed them and get them their leaves to munch when I found the new lil guy so instead videotaped babies.
