Oh, did I forget to tell you? The goats are Nigerian Dwarfs. They originated in Africa, thus the name. They are the perfect size for the smaller homestead. The milk has as high a butterfat content as an original sized goat! Maybe even more! You can be assured, I'll at least give cheese making a try! I just think about all of the things I can make from their milk! But, I've got to find a billy to breed them with. Local, of course! I know God will hook us up at just the right time, like He has done now! I still have to look, though!
I just planted some more swiss chard, turnips, beets, and spinach. The other seeds I planted are turning into small plants! It's dry again, so I'm going to have to water everything. The okra is coming in nicely. I will cut some more today. I have some photos to share, so I'll end for now. I can hear the babies crying for me as I write this! That is so sweet! Ya'll have a great week! Blessings from Bama!
