Barncast 162 — Planning and more planning

We need you to call the farm phone, 206-202-GOAT. With your help we can make two great shows while we’re out of town, we’re looking for calls on anything you want, and if you need ideas, why not tell us about the garden you are planning this year? What do you do that no one else does? What works for you?

This weeks show we have a good round up section. There’s a lot starting up around the farm there days! We have updates on the goat kids, seeds, planting, etc.

    Hello again Misty and Andrew.

    I don’t know if you listen to the Thom Hartmann podcast but he had a very interesting show about the HR 875 bill floating around congress (3/26 hr 2). It seems to have been heavily influenced by large companies like Monsanto and Cargill and would make it difficult or impossible for small farmers to sell food. Here is a link to a story about it that I found on the Care2 network:

    I know that you don’t much get into politics on your show (except for the Limbaugh comments), but this is something that affects all of us who try to support small local farmers. I’d like to get your opinion about this.
    Hope things are going good for you both and that this cold snap hasn’t hurt you. Have a great vacation!
