Rainy Days and Sundays

I am always fascinated when the pond has the "smoke" rising from it when the temperature fluctuates just right.
I have been trying to get out and mow, but we continue to have more rain, and not enough wind and sun in between to dry out the saturated ground.
Everyone went for a walk around the pond yesterday morning since the woods are off limits due to the first day of archery season. Can you see the other three walkers in the mist?
 The goats are doing some end of season maintenance for us.
Because the hose was constantly connected to the faucet, I only mowed around one side of it, and so it became more and more overgrown.
Well, the goats are loving their work!
They are also doing a fantastic job of cleaning up the outside of the garden fence. They lined up like a well oiled team.
Eventually, they'll get the inside, but the chickens get to clean up first.  But not too soon. We are still getting a few tomatoes and peppers.

The other good thing about these kind of days is finishing projects. I'll post a couple completions soon.
