Sarges new toys!

So the other day my mother and I went to the tractor supply because...Were getting goats!
Two girls and one boy. Were just setting up the fencing and removing all toxic plants before we pick them and up and bring them home.
Once we do, I will post about that ^^
Now! We went to the Tractor supply and we bought him a Scythe

Well Sarge was a typical man and went crazy with it hehe.
Now from the pictures its hard to see what he did, but he attacked the stream in the front yard with it. He attacked the ground the first few times...But after a while he got the hang of it and made himself a nice little bare patch along the stream.

Followed of course by his mess, which I of course was the one to clean up and neatly pile up for him to pick up lol.

This is a better picture of the "damage". Danny our barn cat loved it! He got to hunt the frogs in it and for him that was a special treat. Sarge had to take a break and nurse his battle wound *A little popped blister*  Poor Sarge.

After that he went to work on his gardens which are looking amazing!
I took this right in the middle of his project. He replanted all of the tomatoes and added wooden stakes. It actually looks beautiful completed. There are mostly Tomatoes in this side with a few cucumber vines. He also added a wire mesh for the Cuc's to climb up.

And the other side of the garden is full of lettuce, Garlic, onion, a mint bush that we cant seem to kill, basil, Pepper plants, and Soybeans.
Its looking very good this year for him. I really hope that he is able to keep up with it all.

Even the herb garden is looking good after the chicken onslaught. Everything is regrowing nicely, even the mint and the Sage. The chives, feverfew, yarrow, lemon-balm, and Oregano is blooming like crazy! Though sadly the rosemerry never came back, and a few of my tea herbs didnt come back either :/ Oh well! I have seeds, I will just have to replant.

As Promised, here is a picture of the unused section of the gravel-pit that Sarge will be digging out and filling in with compost and top soil. Dont mind the crate, thats just there for the smaller chicks to escape into should the adults attack them. Though...now that most of the chicks are gone I have to bring it up. *sigh*


This is Sarges blueberry patch, we have to find a way to keep the hens and crows away from it...They keep eating them on us!!!

The Elder Berry tree that we plan on moving.

And Sarges little Grape vines and covered Honey Berry Bushes. This is his next weeding project.

And last but not least, the root bound Mullberry Tree we "rescued" from the pot it was trapped in. Its still weak, but seems to have wintered over very well. We just hope that it keeps growing and wont go downhill this coming winter.

I promise I will take pictures of the community garden he is growing in, once its weeded...Sarge wont let me take any pictures when its unweeded Lol.
