Guess What I have been making ?
It all started bright and early Friday Morning. Mishka (My little goat girl) and I went out after the dew had burned off and started picking DANDELIONS - Yes, those wonderful gifts that we are taught to kill with every horrible chemical we can find. Here at the Funny Farm it is a favorite of both two and four leggeds.. Since there is not a chemical every, every used here you can eat them without any worry. Mishka and I took a nice basket with cotton towel in the bottom and went to picking. Mishka I think thought that every flower was her's - she tried to take them out of the basket thinking I was just collecting for her. Then the hens came a running thinking "Oh Boy, Mom is picking us some goodies". I finally had my 500 heads of perfect gold and off to the kitchen I went. Mishka and the hens continued plucking and eating - you can never run out of Danelions on this farm - I know it drives my neighbor NUTS because he spends his every waking moment trying to kill things that could feed him, his family and farm animals but he is a slave to Monseto..
