Delicious Surprise In The Goat’s Pen

Jada was playing in the goat’s pen the other day and noticed something peculiar. She showed it to her Daddy, who was quickly able to confirm her suspicions…

The goats have been secretly growing tomato plants behind their house!

And not some scrawny little plants. These are beautiful, robust, and producing a ton of juicy green tomatoes!

They are definitely much healthier than the ones I intentionally planted in my garden! (Go figure.) It must be all of the goat poop in there fertilizing them.

I couldn’t figure out how in the world tomato plants got in there. Then my husband reminded me that before we got the goats, that was the spot where we used to throw out our kitchen scraps!

Cool! I don’t know why the goat’s aren’t eating them, but I’m ever so grateful! Especially since the tomatoes in my garden aren’t looking so hot. I wonder what kind these are?? They look like they’ll be delicious whatever kind they end up being. Hopefully the goats won’t notice the ripe red fruits before we do!
