pause for a moment

We've been very busy having a baby at our house. She is beautiful and suffers from day/night confusion, just like all babies.

The tomatoes are growing like crazy, the spinach and lettuce have officially gone feral, and the melons and squash are healthy and happy--and not eaten by squash bugs yet. I wonder if we'll get a melon worth eating. Our growing season is a little too short for melons to really thrive, but a home-grown melon is such a joy.

We're going to take some of the goats to the livestock auction, since nobody seems to want to buy dairy goats in this area. Call it a lesson learned. This fall we're going to breed the does to a Boer buck, then we'll have our meat supply for next year--hopefully. We're going to slaughter a couple of them to see what the meat is like, which is sad, but necessary.

Layne,

Congrats on the arrival of Willa. Eden is most excited to hook up with her old friend again.
