Things have been busy around here, we're in full swing with the farmers market, picking and canning green beans, and just everything else that goes on around here. I got a batch of soap made yesterday as well, it's a new recipe that is scented with "White Amber & Ginger" and smells lovely!! It will be available here in a few weeks after it cures out.

All my baby goats are growing up so fast!! The older ones are so big now, the Boer bucklings probably being close to 90 pounds. I'm very pleased with this kid crop, looks like my Boer buck threw just what I wanted, they are so thick and muscular!

The "Garden Workshop" kid

Me and some of my herd :)

Duffy and Dooley got hair cuts this week, poor Duffy had to get shaved, his hair was so long that he was getting very hot, so I figured he'd be more comfortable this way. :) I still think he's cute, but there's several in our family that don't care for his new "do!" He kept closing his eyes everytime I'd take a picture, because of the flash I guess while Dooley just had the perfect pose.

Dooley had to try riding Mercy's trike, Josh had him out there pushing him around on it and I had to get a picture!! :D

Anna took this cool picture of the sunset with a goat silhouetted against it, I thought it was pretty neat!!! She was wishing it was a cow instead of a goat though. :D

And then my 20th birthday is coming up on me fast, yikes!! My dear friend Danielle is flying in on Tuesday so she can help celebrate, we're all so excited to see her again!!

The Pictures of the goats are cute. I don' blame Anna, a cow silhouetted would look better:) but then again Andrew wants to raise cattle, and I am always behind him on things like that so maybe that is why I agree with Anna:))
