Mmmmm, Broccoli

The cold weather is upon us. We have had frost almost every morning for a week and I heard the male person say it was going to be 15* on Friday. Brrrrrrr! This means that the garden is done for the season. I secretly think the publicist is very happy about this. I heard her mumbling things about how many tomatoes there were....I won't repeat them here, this is a family blog.

But this is very good news for us goats! Why, you ask? Because we get to eat the plants! That's right. The publicist pulls them and gives them to us for goat treat. Right now she is working her way through the broccoli plants. Mmmmm, broccoli.

As you can imagine it is a bit hectic when the publicist brings the yummy plants into the goat pen.  We all try and eat at once...

Even the kids try and get in on the act and nibble at the broccoli leaves.

And it wouldn't be a feeding frenzy without Blue Guy, would it?

Jillian really enjoyed her broccoli. I don't blame her - it's yummy!

Actually, Jillian and Mallory tend to butt us smaller goats out of the way to get to the pile. 

But the publicist always makes sure to spread the tasty treats around so we all can share...even the chickens.

I can't wait to see what the publicist pulls next. The male person went through and cut down all of the corn stalks. They are drying in the hay pile. Mmmmm, corn stalks.....

Tomorrow:  Wordless Wednesday
