Looks like it’s time to make hay again! The farmer is cutting it today. This makes 2 cuttings this year, which should fill our hay loft. That gives us lots of healthy hay for the goats!

My silly kittens won’t stop climbing my kiwi vine trellis!! It’s a shame they’re so cute doing it because it’s really making me frustrated with them.

A few weeks ago, we told you about our new barn cat, John Boy. He has been doing great; everyone on the farm has fallen in love with him.

But then last week, when Kirk & Connie from Oregon stopped in at Goat Milk Stuff, they discovered a stowaway. Coming from their engine was the sound of a kitten crying. After a lot of pushing and pulling (and trying not to get burned by the hot engine), Colter and Jesse removed a young, terrified, black and white kitten from under the hood. (And no, she hadn’t come from Oregon, they had spent the night nearby at a relative’s house).

She was scared and had a few cuts, and had obviously arrived at her new home – there was no way Brett was letting her go.

Mary Ellen spent the first few days hissing at John Boy. But now they’re good friends and the two of them are having loads of fun in the hay loft which is their home base.

Does your family have any cats?





Our kittens (John Boy and Mary Ellen) are having fun in the hay loft this afternoon. They have been quite popular among the family; when you can’t find someone good chance they’re playing with the kittens!


Emery has a variety of flowers in his flower garden. Because there is so much variety, they don’t all bloom at the same time of year. Which means there are always some kind of pretty flower growing.

One of the flowers that are blooming right now, are the lilies!
