Beet the Heat

It is HOT.
Hot and SMOKEY.
I do not like this combination.
I am an old goat.

I like it a little bit cool with nice clear air.
I tried to maaaa this to the publicist but she told me there was nothing she could do about it.

She did bring us a treat though so this made up for it a little bit.
What did she bring?

One of my favorite summer time treats!
Beet greens!
You know how much I look forward to them every year.

Apparently the harvest was not that big this year so we did not get a lot of them.
But what we got was pretty tasty.

The publicist gave me my share first.
You can see that Louise the goat is acting a little put out behind me.
But I am a special goat so I should get mine first.
Do you not agree?

Do not worry Louise the goat got her share of beet greens.
I must say that I was a bit put out while she ate and I had none left.
It is how we goats are.
We want what the other goats have.

Oh, excuse me!
But they are quite good and I did gobble them down.

Don't forget to vote for Sherpa's photo!

  1. Well, you will be happy to know that I, for one, will never covet your beet greens, Pricilla!

  2. Tutu wonders if she can get some beet greens...

    PS/ We voted yesterday and we're waiting for the 24 hours to be up so we can vote again!

  3. Yum! I like how the Publicist makes sure you get your treats first. I do that with Grace too. I think you have earned the right to go first.

    How did your garden do this year? It has not been hot enough here for our garden. We have a few green tomatoes, and that is it. :(

  4. Oh Pricilla, we totally agree that you are very very special and should get the treats first. Glad to see you scarfing them down. You all enjoy your Tuesday.

  5. great, healthy beet greens for all of you! yay! (and yes, i voted! thanks!)

  6. Humans like beet greens, too, Pricilla! Sadly, I haven't any in many years.

  7. We're glad you got your beet greens first since you are very special Pricilla!

  8. You sure are enjoying your beet greens, Pricilla.

  9. Our neighbors the chickens love beet greens too. The Publicist is nice to serve you first ! Purrs

  10. You look like one happy old goat if I may call you that. It let me vote tonight.

  11. You should be happy you got the beet greens. I am a human and I like to eat mine. Best part of the beet.
