|Casey inspecting the front yard area after the goats went on a rampage. Every single flower was gone..|
|Goat girls - 101 in the back there broke out twice on me!|
|here is 101 on the wrong side of the fence - naughty thing!|
|they are extremely friendly and love people|
|They broke the shade structure that was there and laid on top of it..|

Upon arrival, I went to check on the garden and the deer had eaten everything but the zucchini and broken one of the sprinklers. Here is what happens when zukes get left to grow on the vine..
|3 of these were over 5 lbs... they got fed to the goats|
|Here is the deer that is enjoying my garden while I am gone.|
|One matchstick size asparagus shoot - they are perennial plants and will live for years. But they don't produce much until year 2 or 3... patience is needed for them.|
|Lots of persimmons and I don't like those either!|
|Who puts a pipe that close to the surface and then pours a concrete footing for the wall on top?|
The siding work got started on Weds with them basically tearing off all the trim pieces and cutting the window frames to square them off to be wrapped by the product. Here are the before pictures so we will have a frame of reference when it gets finished... which is supposed to be next Friday.. but we will see.
|South Side _garage|
|The trim is white and the main color is that cypress green next to it.|
|How do you work on a hill? Very carefully.|
|Deck area with the house wrap|
|Front with the old trim torn off and the windows wrapped|
|North side - window and door are trimmed and the house wrap is going up. Casey was not fond of the heat.|
One last "exciting" thing happened on Friday night... while I was watching TV I kept hearing low flying airplanes and started to smell smoke. So I went outside and saw the CDF planes flying and yes smoke in the air...here is the sunset picture I took of it.
|Not clouds but smoke|
One last thing - I made my first "sale" today off the property. I sold purslane to a lady who lives here in Orinda. My first sale is a weed... a nutritious plant but still a weed. I love silly stuff like that, keeps you humble!
