Bees like knapweed, but most animals won't eat it - except GOATS and their innards also kill the weed seeds during digestion. So our young friends put us on the list to have the goats come eat our knapweed when it was ready and when they were in the neighborhood. The goats are kept in place by a portable solar electrical fence and a lovely sheepdog named Shua. They moved across our ten acres in two days, was it fun to watch!

Well, this is probably a lot more about goats and knapweed than you wanted to know, but they did such a good job and the entertainment value was priceless.
Next post will be back to quilting and about the projects for John's retreat in August. He is sewing right now and watching the Olympics. I better clean house. Brooke
