Seattle Tilth Chicken Coop Tour; Last Stop!

I love how everyone on this tour made up names for their urban farms.  I don't know if they actually call their houses/yards these names for the rest of the year, but some of them were seriously awesome.  This one? The Goat Justice League.  How could we not go to there?

This house was perched on an extremely steep lot, with an amazing view.  (Just wait.)

Their backyard was equal parts growing area and crazy goat hillclimb.  They used some of this really strong wire mesh (I think it's called "cattle guard" or something like that) to make a vertical squash trellis.

They also had some really lovely flowers- my guess is that they're hollyhocks, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

I wasn't kidding about the view, was I?

And the goats!  This is the stairway down into their area.  Their pen is a multi-level structure, with a way for them to climb around it to the top.

 The steps to the top.

Their own private rooftop!

They had two very special goats that got to live in this climbing paradise.  And some chickens too, their coop is on the underside of the house (you can see them up in the middle picture).  

We had a really great time on the tour this year, and can't wait for next year!
