I planted Oregon sugar peas and the first 12 sweet corn seeds in row 1 of the garden.¬† The dirt on that row seems really compacted, so we’ll see how it goes.

We planted potatoes in part of row 2 a few weeks ago. They’re up and looking good.

We’ve had a good amount of volunteer lettuce and orach growing that we’ve been harvesting and enjoying at the dinner table.

We transplanted tomatoes and peppers last weekend.

We watched a deer decimate the fresh leaves on our grapevines yesterday. I’m glad the netting around the garden is working to keep them out.

The baby goats are all growing quickly. They’ve all been disbudded. In a few weeks, they’ll get banded and turned into wethers.

I think I’ve already ruined the new chainsaw engine. Not sure what’s going on.

Update: Juniper’s kids are boys, not girls. We have four baby boy goats.

Juniper’s baby goats (both girls) were born Sunday evening. We were at a church meeting, and when we got home, they had just been born. Like Hazel’s kids, they have spent most of the first couple days sleeping. They have also seemed like they were shivering, but it seems to be subsiding today. They haven’t had problems nursing, though. And they went out into the back pasture with their mom today.

Hazel’s kids are bonkers now, running and jumping all over the place. After about a week of us helping them with nursing, they gradually figured it out and don’t need our help anymore.

My chainsaw stopped running, and I had to replace the engine. From what I’ve learned, the scoring on the exhaust side of the piston meant that I wasn’t giving it a chance to warm up, so the exhaust side was getting hot quicker than the intake side.
