    Congrats on being farmer of the day.

    I too have backyard raised garden beds. I expanded by two to a total of five for this year.

    Have a great farmer of the day.

    It is very challenging trying to keep any vegetables or flowers! My two little pygmy goats will eat every plant around if I don't keep a fence around the plants. The goats like my hot pepper plants and other vegie plants, they even eat my impatiens flowers. I have to come up with a new arangement for my plants next spring. I like to keep the goats lose as much as possible to fertilize the ground.

    Goats can be curious can't they? I have many containers on my front patio. It's been challenging growing in containers in the shade.
