as promised ... hard to get a shot of them all together ... but here they are ... four weeks old on tues - if you haven't see the picture of the new goats, born 5/28 (yesterday) go back one page and take a look - and how "my garden grows"

Image

just look at that fat face... ha - she has no tail ... a ManxAmeese - the big wild-looking one (pic above far right) doesn't have a tail either, and has the look of a manx - and the black one (with four white feet - chest and belly) is identical to his dad, if he grows long hair - people sure do love these tabbys too ... they have such expressive faces w/all the stripes in the right places

Image


Dot's new borns snoozing in the shade and protection of the yuca ... tonight they are tucked into the woodpile ... "instintual intelligence"
good thing too, because I saw that ole rabbit snatching fox, slinking around, early one morning - last week ... kids are too big for them to drag off, and Nannys are fierce defenders (not like sheep) of their kids ... and that's when horns come in handy ... I saw Sunny's buck kid, send Mr Brown flying recently (boy was he surprised) - they can defend their "cave" easily - but prefer to sleep out doors - I had to "hunt" to find them

Image

It is hard to comprehend, how a "domestic animal" could transfer its consciousness into its off-spring - but they were clearly displayed, when the buckling jumped up when he saw me approaching - he didn't cry for his mama, he didn't flee - he stood his ground, and lowered his head - ready to defend the doe who instinctually "froze" to avoid detection --- just as if they were adults - -- but it is even harder for us to comprehend how we, humans, can transfer "intuitive intelligence" -that we can access, at will - or ignore - because we have Free Will as well as Nature - who provides for our every need - unconditionally .... perfectly and intentionally so that we can experience Independence / sovereignty via a symbiotic/integral relationship with Nature - the way our Creator intended and designed Life to be - eternally - evolving

big black clouds comming, so I am taking picture, before it hails all over my gardens ...of course I know better than to put anything that isn't super hardy - outdoors - before the second week of June ... after years of having to plant two gardens because I planted too soon ... which makes a green house really vital - to extend the growing time - without risking the late hail storms up here

the potatoes have been coming up all week, and so have the onions ...
Image

the peas have been hid hard by rain, wind snow, and hail - but they just get stronger for the wear ... onions are fairly indestructible too
I'll wait another week, before I put the Romaine lettus in the empty row ... all ready for them -
Image

the peppers are still in pots, recovering from being mailed here ... and being root bound (ordered two got six - and a broken one) the one in the lft foreground is the only one that wasn't damaged ... the "basket of fire " is blooming like crazy already .... and I picked the eggplant up in wally world ... if it grows the way it is supposed to, one will be enough HA
Image

I terraced a little hill at the foot of the corn field, and planted two types of bush beans - two weeks apart, with beets in the middle - hoping to get enough to freeze this year ... I never seem to plant enough beans or peas ...
Image

here's my crooked row of corn ... I will continue to plant rows, until the field is full - every two weeks, so that we have fresh corn, all summer and into the fall ...that row is at least fifty foot long ... it's a lot of work, but I think it is well worth it, when I taste that fresh organic food ...
Image

the Aspen (and cedar tree) grove is looking great this year ... I put a fence around it, like I should have done (earlier) to the orchard ...
Image

here is the corn field ..."before" ... looking down over the older played out garden ... I really love my new "wind-proof" waste high beds ... so easy to weed, without kneeling or bending ..
Image

after being wiped out twice by snow, the asparagus is growing like crazy ... look closely to see (in front of the cages) the tiny spears, from the ones I planted this year ... next year I will have enough to share ... and for the next 40 years after
Image

all the strawberries came up too ... the five from last year are huge and blooming You can see how the hail just shreds the rubarb, but it is growing new leaves all summer ... to go with the strawberries in a great summer pie
Image

here is where the peppers will grow... and to the right of where the garlic is now, is where I have planted the spinach and will put my seedlings
Image

I've been weeding all week, in the flower beds ... the goats ate all the tulips and daffys (sigh) but here is something they don't like to eat and it comes up all by its self ... weeds an all
Image

yes, it is really rewarding - taking a couple of "classes" in Nature ... the most difficult part about establishing a relationship with Nature, is finding your own plot of land ... Nature does the rest ... you add seeds and water ... keep the weeds at bay, and feed when needed - and Nature provides the rest ... ALL the rest ... the wood to build our home, the ore to build our cars ... it all comes from Nature ... in abundance - unconditionally - if you are willing to put your energy into Nature - it is most satisfying and rewarding

I don't doubt the reward at all... and the last years that have gone by, I've tried my best to put my energy into Nature. It is not easy (for me) since there are many distractions and other things that hinder the smooth flow... but the biggest problem is that I don't own anything, and I have to go on others terms... so it slows down the process... at least as I see it. And if I try to suggest something to other people I usually meet scorn or some form of suppression... it is as if the people I have met so far, are not ready for what I could accomplish... so scorn is the easy way out, rarely anyone wants to be humble... at least that's how I feel. Recently (and in the past years) I've experienced also, that those who have power, 99 % of the time abuse the [Censored] out of it... Sometimes I have struggled with humility, but I can forgive myself, move on and strive for improvement on the things I can improve.

Of course, I can complain about not having this or that, so being grateful for what I have is the key... I have the drive! and I'm getting better at many things... so I'll find a solution, in some way. I'll make it ! I just hope to stay as "fresh" as possible, and to make it "in good time" --- the clock is ticking and I'm concerned about many things.

well, I hesitate to tell you, because I wouldn't want to discourage you ... but I had to work for 40 years to get my little hobby farm ... but then again, I wasn't as focused as you ... and easily distracted (by design) - while raising a family ... and it took me a while before I knew what I really wanted ... so the Universe could help me find it ... and I almost didn't recognize it ... but you can trust, that the Universe knows YOU, better than you think you know yourself ... and it WILL provide for you, just like Nature ... and Our Creator - who wants you to succeed and be WHOLE !

lots of progress in the garden this week ... not as much rain as I think we need, but I can water them with a hose ... I can hardly wait til Sun to take pictures, because everything is growing so fast in the sunshine, radiation, and all !

I put the peppers in the ground, (a week early) at the end of the row , there is one "icheban" egg plant ... to the left is a row of spinach, and the tall weed looking things are garlic ... to the right is a row of onions, with the one left over from last year starting to seed ... for a second crop (all by its self
Image

would you believe how much the asparagus has grown in a week ... imagine a month HA
Image

the peas are climbing up the fence ... the onions standing tall, and the freshly planted Romaine lettuce is just getting started
Image

yellow crook-necked Summer squash is up (in four hills)
Image

this is the one lonely zucchini that came up ( it may be all I need considering how big they get)
Image

this is a cantaloupe (only one of a handful of seeds) no sign of the watermelon I planted at the same time in another hill
Image

I am most pleased with the bush bean turn out - I just threw the beans down, I normally have to plant them three time - but the majic of rabbit gold - seems to be what it needed ... but the beets failed me - I've planted them twice now (in the row besides the beans) once as seedlings, and when they all croaked, I planted seeds and no sign of the corn either and I am still looking for cabbage starts
Image

after a hard hail, I tore off all the shredded rhubarb ... it is growing right back ... with bright red stems!
Image


check out the green strawberries ... this IS the "strawberry moon" so I expect some to ripen soon on last years crop - the carrots you see are what I planted last year, that never came up LOL
Image


but I am really proudest of my potato patch - thanks to the rabbit gold ... it is staying soft and damp this year
Image

this week flew by so fast ... everyday was perfect - just call me sponge bob :lol: ...I still worry about things ... it is a hard habbit to break, but more and more I trust " what IS, is what should be" ... if the garden get shredded by hail - I really don't have that much invested in it ... couple of bucks for the seeds ... my time planting and watering ... and some minor weeding ... Nature does all the work ... from seed to harvest -

pictures do speak a thousand words ...

starting indoors ... we see that everything doubles in size - in one week's time ... the cukes has two leaves last week , now they have four and are working on their fifth ... of the ten plants that are growing, only three will get big enough to climb and produce cucumbers
Image

once they have three or four limbs, - doubling really is dramatic ... these are the tomatoes (organic "big beef steak toms"
Image

here is the "yellow" tomato ... less acid ... sweeter fruit
Image

looks like I am going to have four zuccini ... good thing my neighbors enjoy them too
Image

potatoes are looking good ... getting tall ... and so are the onions
Image

here is a summer (yellow cook-neck) squash ... I have five this week ... seeds still sprouting
Image

the world, from the perspective of a "golden winter squash" that are just sprouting this week
Image

now for my peppers ... this is the super HOT one, in the green house, behind it are "replacements" the lettuce and spinach - or just "extras"
Image

the banana peppers got pretty beat up by the winds last week, but the spinach behind them managed to survive ...
Image

the orange mini peppers are deeper into the garden so they are doing well, as is the garlic (behind) and the eggplant (rt side)
Image

the aparagus "ferns" are taller than me now ... and full of flowers ... so amazing - how fast they grow
Image

big strawberries on last years plants ... but the little ones have berries on them too ... all ten new plants bloomed !
Image

the Romaine, peas and onions in this bed are doing great too! these peas are going to be tall ... and I still find new "seedlings" to transplant so they will be producing all summer long, in this bed on the cool (N) side of the garage ..
Image

way back in the cornfield - things are growing like mad ... here is the bean patch
Image

the "new" beans (brown) are sprouting as well - but not as thickly as the others (white) I'm hoping that they will fill in too
Image

three time's the charm ... the beets are coming up in clumps ... I'll transplant them when they have some roots ... and space them out
Image

corn's UP ... it will also need "thinning" ... but I am pleased that these three year old "seeds" sprouted at all ... the grass is almost a big as the corn, and I need to get that second row planted ... but it was so hot last week, I put it off ... but am encouraged by the results ...
Image

OK that's it for this week ... I will add some pic of the goats ... I am hoping to sell most of them the first week in July ... we shall see how that goes ... but I am counting on what they will add to the expense of the farm ... they pay for everyone's feed ... good thing too, because I still have that bull HA !

and thank you too Shay, its my pleasure to share my "finding" via gardening, but not all of the "good stuff" makes it til Sunday - I eat the strawberries as they ripen - without so much as taking a picture :mrgreen:

I was complaining about the lack of rain ... knowing that my fields need it just as much as my garden ... but at the same time KNOWing, that the hail often comes in the rain - through-out the growing season --- that and the goats could destroy a garden in a matter of minutes ... so I am grateful for every day that the garden survives ... the hail doesn't kill a garden, it just makes it really ugly HA ... this is - so far- the most beautiful garden I have grown here ... not the biggest, but the most cared for ... I spend about an hour a day in the garden ... I don't consider it work, but it is good exercise - and a great excuse to get some sunshine.

I can hardly wait for Sunday, this week...because it DID rain twice (hailed lightly) this week, and the effect is "magical" but even more concerning, there was a lot of (damaging) wind - and that is why very few of my neighbors garden - and why I resorted to digging holes to plant in, in the "old" garden and now have created raised beds in sheltered areas ... one of my extended neighbors, grows her gardens in raised boxes ... four foot tall, and wide and eight ft long - half filled with dirt - to shelter her garden from the wind ... they are easily weeded and can be covered with an old sheet for a greenhouse effect - where there is a will, there is a way ... the first garden in this topic, remember, was indoors, in the Winter HA ... 8) I didn't grow potatoes in that one ...

I'm convinced that growing one's own garden, is how our Creator intended for us to know Human/Nature - our Neanderthal ancestors didn't get that far ... but --- eating foods, that were imprinted by your touch as you put them into the ground, sustained by your breath, fed by water and sunlight ---CONSCIOUSLY - is an evolutionary step from "hunter/gatherer" in Humanities process of self-realization ... Nature offers us a consistent, optimal state of well being ... unconditionally --- by design

we are integral ... earth, water, light, air and our conscious awareness = Sovereignty / Self-realization 8)
the very fact that Nature provides for our every need, proves (to me) that we were intended to be Independent
and that it is never to late for me to "do the right thing" for myself
