    Love your deck goats! I'm a musician with a small home sewing biz on the side - in MA now, but stayed at the Ashford Motor Inn when I was in HS for the All-State concert! Nice to 'meet you' -best wishes for your garden and animals!

    Love the photos. Thanks for sharing. You grow a lot of crops. Was it a good growing season in 2013?
