So the Kale Fairy called me the other day, and said that she has decided she doesn't want a grass-raised kid after all. She can't be responsible for the death of a cute baby animal.

I was taken aback. "But," I said, "you said you ordered grass raised kid before and liked it." Yes... but she's becoming a vegetarian. "But," I said, "You do realize that if you don't eat the kid we will?" Yes.... but she won't be responsible. "But," I said, "I can't possibly just accept all those vegetables for free... what can I give you instead?"
Cheese. I am making three or four pounds of cheese a week, and storing it so that I can have enough for ourselves and enough to keep the Kale Fairy supplied with cheese well into the winter. Seriously, I think we've gotten about $300 worth of organic vegetables from her. I probably can't equal that value in cheese, but I can least equal the value of the goat we were going to give her before her attack of conscience.
Which goat we will now add to our own winter stores.
