Goodbye, Left Foot Farm

Mary

Alas, my goat farming adventure has come to a close. I couldn’t even say goodbye to the goats today because it made me too sad. I will miss those little suckers.

I will also miss the humans. Like Anna, who always has the most creative, spontaneous ideas…

Why WOULDN'T we hook a Radio Flyer "chariot" up to Gypsy? It had to be done.

And Kaley and Gracie, who are just the coolest chicks around…

Kaley loves to make Gracie laugh until she snorts and goes “woo-HOO-HOO-HOO! … woo-HEE-HEE-HEE…”

On my last day, Anna and Ella and I went to pick up a truckload of garden soil. At first we weren’t sure how to load the dirt into the truck. We are so used to doing manual labor on the farm that we were about ready to shovel it ourselves, but then this bad boy arrived to load us up…

Look at that Washington sky!

For my going-away dinner last night, we made a cauliflower-crust pizza.

Tara made the crust out of grated cauliflower, sour cream, and eggs. Gluten-free, yo.

Then this happened…

Jeremy mixed all of these hot sauces and a raw egg into a wine glass.

And offered Kaley $30 to drink it.

Mentally preparing herself…

She was still pretty confident here.

The only rule was that she couldn’t puke for ten minutes. I think this is the moment when she started to get worried.

Oh SHIT…

Tara made $15 by drinking what was left in the glass, along with a shot of whiskey.

In the end, Kaley prevailed! … Sort of…

They dropped me off in Seattle today, and we had lunch at The Honey Hole, which is an excellent sandwich shop on Capitol Hill. I appreciated our booth’s decor…

If only Kat could have been in this picture!
