Weekly Recap/Observations – July 11, 2014

-Re-mulched the garden with straw/hay from under the rabbits and then watered everything

-Trace also mucked out under the chickens and started a pile for that to compost (throughout the week the chickens spread it out looking for bugs to the point there is no longer a pile)

-Trace went to the feed store and picked up the goat, rabbit and chicken food for the month as well as straw and hay

-Brynn watched the animals for us overnight Sunday; seemed to go smoothly

-It’s been a hot week, at least the goats’ water has been dry every night when I’ve arrived home

-Artemis kindled; Trace counted 9 babies

-We opened the door for the keets so they could wander in the goat yard; they seem to be enjoying the freedom and have not flown over/out (yet)

-Temps were mid to high 80s all week

-Pumpkin plant is huge and has flowers – fingers crossed we actually get some pumpkins

-Zucchini is doing well – a couple of small ones have started growing

-The herbs are struggling with the heat – I think I put them in the wrong bed, they should be in one that gets shade earlier

-Everything else seems to be growing well and enjoying the heat (especially with the mulch holding in the moisture)
