Summertime and those days off alway provide the opportunity to get into the garden and do the much needed weeding!

It is very pleasing when you have animals that are quite willing take the weeds off your hands. Between chickens, calves and a goat there is nothing left over.

Here is a picture of Silver the goat eating a lovely nodding thistle which is her favourite treat, some how she just bites the whole thing off and eats it.
