Greens for the critters
More frequent deep
freezes are starting to nip back uncovered growth. Time to put some of
those extra garden greens to use before it's too late.

How about we start with the chickens first, hmmm, Abigail?
The herd instead got a
goat bouquet...or rather two bouquets since Abigail won't let her little
sister dine within a five-foot radius of her horns.
I pulled a little bit of
everything for our capricious buddies, but they were only interested in
the brussels sprouts tops and kale leaves. Perhaps the story would have
been different if they hadn't been gorging on butternut squash, sweet
potatoes, alfalfa pellets, hay, and fresh honeysuckle leaves earlier in
the day. But what can I say? Our goats live high on the hog and know
what they like. Swiss chard and frost-damaged lettuce are not it.
