Bean Buffet (for the Goats)

In the last post I wrote that we were nearing that point of being done with beans. Well, we're officially done with them now! Ashley has taken down the panels....

And created a bean buffet for our hooved residents. 

Ziggy and Waylon have really enjoyed helping us out. I think they've finally earned their keep! 

 They've basically eaten the panels clean, leaving very little work for Ashley. Thanks, guys!

 In other Okra Hill sectors...the caladiums at the chicken house are beautiful! Ashley got a deal on three big boxes of these. It really adds beauty to the chickens' residence!

The fall garden is on its way. This picture was taken a week or two ago--now Ashley has plowed all of this up (except for the radishes and peas he planted). We'll plant beets, kale, lettuces, parsley and cilantro in this space. 

A disappointment last week...bugs ate up our sunflowers. Boo!

Ah, but the okra...oh the okra continues to grow! When I went out today, it was towering over me...maybe nearing 7 feet tall? We've had another great week of weather--really felt like fall~

That's Max, our rat terrier, with me. He's 10 years old and had been living with Ashley's parents for the past 2 years while we built this house and got settled in. We're happy to have him back with us (and from this picture, it looks like the feeling is mutual).
