A lot of people ask "what do you do with it all?" Well, this year we piled a lot of it into some garden boxes. Things probably wont grow that great this year but when next summer rolls around we'll have some wonderfully fertilized soil. We also mixed some compost in there too. The rest of it we just chuck on the ground at the farm. Actually, we should probably move some of it so some areas on our yard where the dirt was washed away. Between the goats and the dogs they squish it into the ground and it becomes a soupy smelly mess in this rainy weather. But when the sun comes out it breaks down pretty fast and the grass grows pretty well on it.
So for those wondering why I avoid farm visits this time of year... that's why!
And oh the most exciting things!
I saved the best for last!
2 weeks from today we will be driving home with our new puppy! Can you believe it!
It still doesn't seem real. When we got Audrey and Lucy we had the ability to go visit but since this puppy is all the way in Quebec we don't have that luxury.
The puppies are 6 weeks old now. And NO we still have not yet chosen which cream boy we will be taking home. They change so much during those first 8 weeks of life it can be hard to pick which one! We do have a name picked which we will announce later and I almost have a registered name picked... I need to get on that! The breeder has been awesome and sending lots of photos to help us make a decision.
The breeder gave them all temporary names, as you know. Below you'll see Moose, Makaw and Finch stacked. How does one decide!? They are all so cute!
