The Crew

Keeping me company while I rake out the run, goats and chickens.  I still cannot find the tools I have in mind for this job... a rake with tines closer together, and a screen to separate the _berries_ from the decomposed granite.  I am raking and hauling a lot of the ground.  I'll compost everything so it's not a total loss, but there's got to be a better way. 

At least I have willing help!

Thanks, Tasha.  

Lets face it,  the real helpers are the ones who stay out of the way!

Oh, good grief.  Goats!


  1. Do a google search for "dirt sifter" or "soil sifter". I found these: http://www.hayneedle.com/product/compostsifter.cfm?source=pla&tid=MA937&adtype=pla&kw=&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=MA937&gclid=CMKfoMKb07kCFc6e4AodNxoA4A

    You could make one, too!

  2. I have always wanted goats and this just makes me want them more. I don't know if you have little kids but I saw the cutest book at the library called Counting Goats that I just laughed out loud at.

  3. Hey Natalie, there is a rake for that, a sand rake. Amazon has one at http://www.amazon.com/playgrounds-Fiberglass-ergonomic-lightweight-warranty/dp/B005DJ1OVM

    There is a sand flea scoop that is out there, too.

  4. Whoa! Thank you! These links are priceless. You read my mind, and GirlRural... the goats are even better than I could have hoped for! Now, I gotta look for that book.


Thank you for visiting.
