Broccoli bouquet

Goat eating broccoli

Basket of broccoli leavesMy garden layout revolves far too much around the goats.

"Hmm, what can I plant in this open bed?" I wonder. "How about some field corn and sweet potatoes to boost Artemesia's milk production?"

Or, Monday morning: "I wonder where I can find a spot to grow sweet corn? Well, if I feed these used-up broccoli plants to the herd, our summer crops can slip in right there."

The trouble is, goats are just so appreciative. Artemesia and company told me they enjoyed their broccoli bouquet very I'll probably repeat the endeavor today. I'll just have to freeze another load of broccoli first....
