From the Homesteading Journal. . .

 . . . found this cute goat planter at a local store.  We got it for a fraction of the cost Menard's was selling them for (small ding in the bottom, so they marked it down for us).

 . . . picked up more goat fencing and supplies.  The dollar signs are just flying by.  I think we still need more supplies.  It's taken us over 2 years to get this fencing up.  That however, is reality in today's economy.

. . . Hubby wants 3 more rose bushes to landscape a few areas.  We still need a load of dirt.

(installation in progress)

. . . picked up 2 more rain barrels.  They are on clearance already.

. . . peas are now up above the fence and ready to harvest.  I might be sharing a new recipe soon.  I also found a recipe for a jalapeno dip we may try.

. . . more broccoli is ready too.  Cauliflower is soon to follow.

. . .my younger brother surprised us by bringing us a load of wood.

The garden looks great. Wish my pea were ready to harvest. They only about 6 inches high.

That goat planter is just too adorable for words! My daughter, who raises dairy goats would so love one for her porch! We don't have a Menards locally.

Cute planter. We're in the same boat with ongoing projects. The bathroom is next year, waiting for 7. It'll be a fairly big remodel. Couldn't get to it yet, with all the other stuff....

I like the toadstool in the background. I have a rain barrel on my list of things to get. Hope I can find some on sale! Cute planter!
