so hydroponics houses can read…

It’s a beautiful day! The eggplant is blooming, the fava beans are growing, the cucumbers are climbing, and we can actually see some blue sky instead of just smokey haze.
I just read a book with a mischievous goat in it and it reminded me of a story my Grandmother tells.
When she was a kid, around 11 or so, her Grandparents traveled a lot. And on one of their trips, they brought back a baby goat for the grandkids. Nanny – as the goat was named – was a sweetheart and enjoyed her run of the farm. However, come summer when customers would come by, Nanny’s goat desire to be as high as possible overcame her. Many a customer would come out of the store to find her on their car. I imagine Nanny probably made it in to some cars, but memories just remember her being on the cars. After a short stint tied up in the orchard – which she heartily objected to – Nanny went to live with a cousin where she could climb on less expensive things.
I do not have a picture of Nanny, so here is our current goat instead. I’m sure she would be happy to climb cars too if we let her.
Also, the hydro-house is apparently on this email list, and saw last Saturday’s email where I said leveling out the floor was low down on the fixit list. ‘Cause the very next day, it decided to take matters into its own hands to ensure that the floor gets leveled. I walked in on Sunday and the ground was soaked. Even with the ends of the channels being propped up, water was still pouring out the wrong direction. Some more propping and a bit of root stuffing later and I got the water going in the right direction.
Messaged received hydro house. The floor will get leveled.
Some seasonal inspiration:

You can read it on the website – obviously – but a copy of the newsletter isn’t posted to the website until several weeks later.
