Checking in from Johnnie Farms. We have had another fencing mishap. This one was thankfully not as dramatic as the loose pigs. Fencing continues to be an issue for us as for all farmers. We are thanking our lucky stars the garden hasn't been decimated by the lovely livestock !!
This time we were home. As you can see from the picture the goats decided to have a hay-day and breakout to enjoy the nice clover we have growing in the yard. We had to call in Max, our herding border collie to help round them up.
Round them up he did, right around the tree....LOL!
Our good friend and not so distant neighbor Margo, from Margo's Garden at the Market, coined the perfect caption for our picture. Instead of ring around the roses it's ring around the tree. They must have circled that tree three or four times before we could get them headed back to the pasture. At least they listen, well kinda, sorta. Going to count my blessings they are easier than the pigs to get back in most of the time.
Enjoy the summer and tune in for more adventures from your local farmers and friends at the Putnam Farmer's Market. Remember nothing is better than eating fresh and eating local..............even the animals agree!
