It’s been an awfully hot and muggy weekend. Humidity is not something we Californians are used to. Is it just me, or is So Cal having more humid days?
Another monthly community gathering was hosted on Saturday night. Thanks for all those who turned up despite the muggy weather and brought such great food.
Sunday, after the typical urban homestead duties and work, we took the goats for a walk. We also did a bit of wild harvesting.
Dig in. Everyone enjoys the wonderful food and fellowship

Our favorite spot under the bridge. The goats love jumping on the big boulders
Wild harvesting elderberries. The goats also “pitch in.” They, too, enjoy nibbling on the purple berries
Snack time. The goats’ idea of “trail mix” – oak leaves! Crunch, crunch
Turning those berries into elderberry syrup – great for topping ice cream!
