Gail’s Garden

Just look at it. 

It is on a hillside slope where deer love to frolic (unless Jem the Australian Shepard is out making his rounds) and where water in most Colorado summers tends to be scarce.

The solutions:  Deer Fence all the way around.  Larry Stebbins’s soil formula.  Terraces.  Fish emulsion.  Careful tending and…

Jem.

Do those things…and you get this:

And this:

And, this:

And, if you want, you can add this:

But, you definitely MUST have this:

Especially if it has a picture of a rooster on it.

I vow to enjoy my garden for the rest of the summer and vow to, next year, garden like Gail.

Amen.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.
