The first half of June was unusually wet and cool

and those parts of the gardens that don't appeal to gophers --
mainly the row of garlic.

Trail Baboon. Cheers, Dale - and thanks for all those years of your whimsical humor, quirky music and goat promotion! We hope to hear your voice on the radio again soon.
And an agonizing but necessary departure of our beloved Dodger. For the health of the herd (Dodger is CAE positive while Alba and Dream remain negative) and because we found a loving home where she can eat apple trees to her heart's content, Dodger left us to live with her kids Loki and Dancer at the Bayfield farm "Chanterelle Woods."
