Here Sally and Princess are eating some of the older sugar snap peas vines that we cleaned out to make room for the next crop planned for that space. There’s still a few pea pods on the vines, and there is always a race to find them before the other goats. Humans aren’t the only ones who love sugar snap peas!

It’s hydroponics (growing plants in water), but instead of adding liquid plant nutrients, the water runs through another tank that contains fish. It’s a symbiotic sustainable relationship.
