Planting

We are home! There has been a lot of things going on at our place since we left to Carlton MN.

We have (along with our three sheep) five goats, two of them are three or four day old kids, and Dad has been calling them "you" and "you too." They are real cute! You is mostly black on her back but You Too has the same design only with extra white spots on her back. One of the other goats, Ned (we didn't name him) is our Billy goat. He is the most friendly goat of them all! The other two are females and are Mustard Seed and I forgot the other one's name but we are milking Mustard Seed and the other one is the one that had kids so we are letting the kids take the milk from her for now.

Now for the planting part. We have planted: corn, beans, tomatoes, some peppers, lots of raspberries, onions, lots of potatoes, carrots, peas, red wheat as an experiment, white wheat as an experiment, oats as an experiment, and a bunch of trees scattered in the raspberry patch. Now that we have all that planted it takes about three or more hours to totally soak the plants as much as they need. Yesterday we watered using Steve's water tank and a gas pump on the bace of his pickup truck. Each tank full was about 350 gallons and we used at least five tank fulls. That is a lot!!! We will still be planting more this spring. Got to get going and ready to milk the goat.
