In today’s show, we will hear a bunch of reality checks for the homesteader. Summer has arrived, and there is lots to do. The animals can be grumpy when it is hot. My garden is in an interesting state. Plus we got two goats and they’ve been teaching me a ton, and, after years of offering, my sister trusted me with two nieces for Holler Homestead Summer Camp.

What we are preserving this week Where we share what we are preserving for winter storage
GOATS DAY 1 of goats illuminated 2 fencing issues Day 2 of goats illuminated how deeply you must set a tether Day 3 of goats illuminated what happens when you have a head goat - no need to tether the other one Day 5 of goats illuminated that if you tether the non-dominant goat, the dominant one runs off Day 14 of goats: things are under control - dogs and goats are working together again so I can leave my raccoon chasing dog back out in the yard, the yard is starting to show signs that something is eating the weeds - which is our goal, and we have discovered that goats LOVE apples.
Conclusion: Don’t get goats for the first time, even with Goat Knox built, unless you can be home for a few weeks until you get the hang of things.
Summer is just now beginning but it feels like things are in full swing here in Tennessee. Everyone is busy so don’t get too upset if you have weeds in your garden or fall behind on your canning. Snap back to your priorities, get real, and make a list. And remember - make it a great week!
