Getting ready for the goats
Yesterday we set up the temporary paddock for the goats and today I headed to a farm near Crook in Co Durham to collect 11 bales of fresh meadow hay. I did a swap for them: a jar of honey, one of blackcurrant jam, one of bramble jelly and one of green tomato chutney. Back on the allotment I used some of the bales to build the temporary goat house. The rest were stacked up on a pallet and covered with a plastic sheet.
Tomorrow, Thursday, we collect the goats. This is going to be quite an experience for us.
