Barncast 156 — Garden Planning

This week we start looking at what our plans are for the garden this year. We look back at the last few years, what worked, and what didn’t work in our garden. Tell us your thoughts at 206-202-GOAT.

We have some bad news this week, Cream the goat and Boots the cat passed away. She was 12 which is doing well for a girl that’s had ~25 kids, 12 for us alone. These are pictures of Cream and boots.

A very wet Cream:

    Misty and Andrew,

    I’m so sorry about the loss of your friends. I feel like I know Cream personally through your podcast, and although she was a farm animal and not a pet, I’m sure you guys will miss her nonetheless. Boots was a beautiful cat. It’s amazing how close you can get to these little guys. They really become family. As small as they are they really leave a big, sad space when they’re gone.

    WIth many kind thoughts,

    Thank you very much. It is sad, but she lives on through her kids Baby and Baby’s daughter. She’ll be with up one way or another. :)

    I was catching up on some back episodes and was sorry to hear about Cream and Boots.
