  1. Would like to note that orchards and goats don’t mix, the same way that orchards and deer don’t mix 😉 Although if you went with the Nigerian Dwarfs, you wouldn’t have to wrap too high up the trunks to keep them from nibbling/rubbing off the bark… Looking at the list, it’s pretty much everything BUt the kitchen sink, huh? oof.

    • *grin* Orchards over there *points* Goats over there *points* Since we’ll already have to wrap the trees. Well, just the utility room sink.
