For years I've been talking about getting a goat to take care of our grass weeds. We currently have someone cut our grass but we don't do anything about the weeds and they have pretty much taken over whatever lawn area we have, so in essence we have someone come bi-monthly to cut our weeds. Now that we know how bad the pesticides used to kill weeds are both for us and the environment it seems even less likely that we'll ever have a decent looking lawn. Except maybe if we got rented a goat to eat all the weeds!

I ran across this post on the Seventh Generation blog and am convinced I need a goat for our .34 acres. Plus they are so cute, aren't they? I just have to find out from our local codes enforcement director if it's allowed in our Borough. And if there is anyone around here that will rent me one.
