James Hill Goats

Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats for milk, pet or show


Summer definitely on the way...

Watched the birds snacking on mulberries while having my morning cup of coffee on the porch ( ignoring the goats loud assertions that they would starve before I finished...they didn't ;)).  Cedar waxwings, several grosbeaks, and a pair of flickers flitting all around the tree looking for the ripest fruit.  

The first daylily of this season opened in our garden today.  I love the color!

After I finished the morning milking, I potted up the Stevia and Portulaca I purchased last week.  The beautiful weather and all the outdoor activity inspired me to mix up a batch of soap that I have been wanting to try.

I developed this soap recipe specifically with gardeners in mind.  To our basic goat milk soap I added finely ground pumice to scrub away dirt and grime, with dried lemon zest and lemongrass essential oil for a cheerful, refreshing scent.  Tomorrow I will take it out of the mold and cut it...then try to be patient for 4 weeks while it cures!
