200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

Destroying an over-ripe mango.
They're beginning to lay eggs again. I got 3 eggs yesterday from these 5 hens. For the last month in the playhouse, only one hen was still laying, every other day. I actually had to buy store-boughten eggs. Horrors! But I deserved it for treating them so badly.
The goats have been eating, resting, eating, and whining for me to come keep them company. It's cute. Coco likes raisins - thanks for the suggestion Melanie! Penny has no use for stinkin' raisins. Still don't have anything to tempt Penny, except that she likes having her face scratched like a cat. They both love the minerals I bring for them in the evening, which is how I get the leashes on to take them back to shelter for the night. Since I put the dogs away in the house in the morning and evening to move the goats, I suspect that the goats will eventually follow me unleashed. But I'm not ready to take that chance, it's only been 2 weeks of this and practice with the leash is not a bad thing. They're getting to be pretty good leash goats.
