    Now that my little guy is feeling better, I was thinking of giving these two a proper diet. I've been feeding them orchard hay at night and they have been getting pasture during the day. I was feeding Black Oil Sunflower Seeds at two quarts a piece (four pounds) which is a lot now that I've...

    I was making some Chevre last week, to serve with a mixed greens salad and chicken pot pie. This seemed like a simple thing -I had the pie filling made, and I was using refrigerated pie crusts so all I would need to do was assemble the pies, pop them in the oven and then assemble and serve the...
