The Country Homemaker Hop #64

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you've been keeping BUSY on your homestead.  We continue to make a little progress here on ours.  I planted several plants this week including hot peppers, squash, and more tomatoes and cucumbers.  I am addicted to them all. 

My garden bed so far...
I am even beginning to see progress in my first real flower bed.  This flower is for you DEB.  You're my inspiration to get into the dahlias, and heck flowers in general.  I am not a horticulturist.  My schooling was mostly forage and crop sciences based. Lol.  My first dahlia of the season.  I hope there are many more.

My first dahlia
I washed and clipped my baby dairy goats for another show next weekend.  

Clean and sporting new haircuts.  Addy is even smiling for the camera!
I am really excited because I will pick up my yearling milker and show her too AT the show.  She'll be my first dairy goat in milk. Woohoo!  Fresh milk on the horizon.  

Now, let's get HOPPING!

Please LINK UP and share what's going on in your neck of the woods.  


  1. Your baby goats look absolutely adorable!

    I hope they come away with a first prize :) x

  2. I've been playing in the garden today as well. We hooked up the irrigation hoses in the raised beds and connected the pump to the underground cistern. Then hours of pulling grass startlings that always find their way into the beds and watering a few things. I've just GOT to have my hands in the dirt!
