I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

More than turnips

I had a lovely chat with Farmgirl on Tuesday night.  She asked what was in my veggie garden and I told her, turnips.  The goats have eaten all the rest.  Well that isn't totally true.  I was out weeding and getting ready for Spring today and this is what I found.

About 6 big beetroot...and two rows of tiny babies.
The tall broad beans are flowering but not setting yet.

Some of the garlic has a goat style hair cut...but it is doing well.
There may even be enough spinach for a meal.
The short broad beans look healthy but no flowers.
The rainbow chard is 'short'...goated.
There are some cabbages that the goats thought were
too small to be bothered with.

There are also onions, shallots, carrots, and leeks...but all too small to eat.
Best of all, when I was working in the veggie patch, Bazza inadvertently showed me where he has been getting in...well, that won't be happening anymore.  Roll on Spring.


  1. Oops silly Bazza, no more free lunches for him.

  2. Yay, some garden pics...lovley, I just posted that I hadnt seen peoples gardens for a bit....Im a vegie bed sticky beak for sure...I think even though you have had goatey visits that there is more growing in there than in mine! thanks for the look....

  3. wow you hvae loads in your garden..slim pickins in ours right now

  4. Looks as if many of the goat-damaged plants may recover after all. Actually you do have quite a lot of veg in your garden, despite the problems you have encountered. The photo of the beetroot leaf is just my style of photo - I love the light effect.

  5. Love the photo of the sun behind the beetroot leaves. Brings out the colours beautifully.

  6. Wonderful recovery after shear-goated. No more happy chomping from Bazza.

  7. It's very weird to see pictures of all your garden goodies and know that you are in Winter :) Mo

  8. Agree with Mo. Winter here means very cold and lots of snow. Envious! Glad you were able to discover the entry point.

  9. What a thoughtful little goat. Not only did he leave you some vegies to share with him, he's shown you how to get in and out of the garden.

  10. Haha sprung bad bazza! At least now that he has had the garlic he wont need worming.

  11. Naughty Bazza sounds like his plot for garden domination has been foiled
