May 2015

May began with the late leafing of the trees. The Farmers' Market at Dewey Square in Boston restarted on Thursdays: our first year at this market. Late in the month we've been looking for our weather window for haymaking.

We lost our beloved friend, Weber, at age 13 this month -- he just happened to be a goat. Our herd historian, he had known every goat in the herd.
