    We spent 3 days this week cleaning the church... all of the deep cleaning stuff that is always put off.... we did NOT do everything that needed doing. We tired out. -sigh-

    Plus the usual stuff at home of course.

    When I arrived home from work today I found two 1/2 dry, nursing, large white doelings :love Good work, Daisy!!!
    Now we are at 6 bucks/5 does. :celebrate Catching up. Talk about "who's who" 9 white, one black and 1 pale crème. Saanens need to be stenciled :lol:. If you "know them" you see little differences, especially since most have some spots on their udder. Weird, I know. To average passerby it's a whole lot of white goats.

    Should be another 3 weeks for the next group. Little rest time.

    It's been a great day here -- sunshine, warm and breezy. I stopped at a friend's to pick up 3 LOVELY fig trees she had rooted from her trees. She gives me about 95% of the figs -- they don't eat them :ep --- I give her eggs & all the fertilizer she wants for her garden. But the trees are getting older and so last Fall we decided to package some shoots with dirt, secured around the base by cutting a big plastic plant bucket, securing it and letting it grow. Now, about 7 months later, these things are beautiful. 3 & 4 foot tall, leafing and all that....I love it...& her for doing it. Don't even know the kind -- nor does she as they were in the yard when they bought the place some 25 yrs ago. But, small, sweet fruit. I dehydrate them and enjoy. Yep, still getting her figs, these won't bear much for a while. So now my "orchard" has 3 apple trees (young & flowering), a huge plum tree and these 3 figs. I plan to add about 6 blueberry bushes later this year. On a roll.

    I need to go play with the goat kids, check for placenta drop, etc. Love it....I am so blessed. I love my little farm. If I am lucky, tomorrow I can get my garden going. Better late than never. :clap

    congrats on the new kids and the fig trees. Have you ever made strawberry fig preserves with strawberry jello? They are soooo good!

    We are going natural again this year. No young kids "needing" to color eggs. And the only white layers I have are laying smalls. Thus we will have an array of browns and greenish blues.

    I bet water from artichokes would make an interesting green color. The water in the bottom of the pressure cooker is pretty dark.

    I saw a post somewhere...maybe Pinterest of all the different natural colors. I’m thinking it’s really neat but I don’t have time to put forth that much effort!
