Stuffy, but not very hot. Today milked the small goat (which is probably not in kid) for the first time. For a long time could get no milk at all, though the udder was large & obviously contained milk. Finally discovered that if instead of running my hand down the teat in the ordinary way, I took hold of the whole quarter & squeezed as if squeezing out¹ a sponge, the milk came quite easily. Apparently a different configuration of udder. Wretched yield, about 1/2 pint from two goats combined. But they are eating well & should improve soon.
Ripe pepper falling from the trees. No eggs.
