Good Pickins’ #29

I’ve had a slight goat obsession recently. I can’t help it. I have a goat now. And she’s cute and she gives us milk and she bleats at us and walks on a leash when you need her to. I love it.

We’ve dealt with some milking challenges and hassles this week, but we are getting the hang of it a little at a time. Leslie is even letting me milk her by myself without someone else around to steady her. And she’s stopped sitting in the milk now. That’s always a plus.

Back to Eden Film– This documentary is available online for free through the link provided. Paul Gautschi shares his organic gardening methods that mimic the natural processes we see all around us in creation. His focuses? Keeping the garden covered and keeping it simple. Whether or not you agree with all of his religious premises, there is a lot to be learned from Paul’s methods.

Who is Teaching Whom– I appreciated this perspective from a mom who’s been homeschooling for seven years. We’re planning on beginning “officially” homeschooling my son next year, and I’ve been fretting about whether or not I’m going to do a good job. This post gave me a little encouragement that I don’t have to have it all together all the time.

To The Relative Who Thinks I’m a Glorified Pet Owner– April shares her heart in why she got into owning animals- because she wanted GOOD FOOD. And that’s exactly why we wanted to as well. If we wanted food that was fresh and not loaded with pesticides, additives, and sugars- we either had to spend our whole paycheck on groceries, or do it ourselves. We chose the latter.

That’s it for today, folks. Happy reading and have a beautiful Saturday. 🙂
