I waited long enough to write this that we actually have a few new farm members to announce.
Several weeks ago our community garden coordinators came home from a training with a Great Pyrenees puppy who has been named Pyrhee (pronounced Purr-ee). She's about 3 months old and came from a farm with many goats and chickens so our little family was no big deal for her. As you can see, she loves water and is adapting quite well to our little community farm.
Next, just a week ago, a baby goat was dropped off at our farm. He's been named Sketch (although I like to call him Gregory) and he is pretty sick. We're working hard with the community farm vet to get him back to full health.
And finally our newest farm member was rescued from a community member whose circumstances no longer allowed them to care for their adorable pot bellied pig, Pork Chop. He's learning his place in the garden family and has already found a nice place to hang out in Pyrhee's dog house.
In other news, I recently read a really interesting and horrifying article in Modern Farmer about food waste. It has inspired me to get our family's waste under control. So get ready for updates from No Waste November as we embark on a journey to change our habits and reduce food and overall waste one household at a time. Luckily we've gotten some initial ideas from our MF friends as well.
