Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Oh Nibbles.....

Pretty much this sums up how things are going.....Dahli being a goof and Nibbles acting the fool.


I'm not sure what Nibbles is doing in Little Red (the wheelbarrow) but at least she is happy. Most of the barnyard is pretty happy.

After our latest round of storms we've had cool and comfortable weather. Everyone is out clucking around and being goofy. The babies, Daisy and Darla, are extremely cute right now. They want to see everything and run around. They've started coming down into the new pasture with the older goats. Unfortunately they are not afraid of the electric fence at all. Someone is going to get zapped.

I've been trollying in a whack of the homemade hay in the wheelbarrow for the goats. They just love it. However they always tip the wheelbarrow over with their foolishness. So I figured out to stabilize the wheelbarrow by putting the handles thru the lawn chair. This works - but it also gives them a perch to jump on and off. But at least they are having a good time.

Happy Saturday everyone! Is your barnyard happy?

We have the same red wheelbarrow. Same silly (stupid) goats. Same goats that jump in the wheelbarrow full of hay and dump it all over the ground.
Every.
Stinking.
Time.

a overcast day breaks here. Another inch of rain expected. The goats look good and happy.

It's been in the 70's the last couple of days. We and the hens have enjoyed it!
