Visit to the Old Goat Farm: Winter Garden and Christmas Tea. Cookbook Giveaway

Greg Graves and Gary Waller share their garden and farm, located just outside Orting, Washington state, 
through garden tours and open days, classes, picnics for garden clubs and other activities.
We came here in December to enjoy their traditional (since 2007) Christmas Tea.

Here he is, the Old Goat from the  Old Goat Gardens and Nursery!
I went outside the house to say Hello to him while other guests enjoyed delicious desserts. 
Yes, tea and desserts - this was one of the reasons we drove to the farm on a gray, wet December day.
The other reason was the desire to see, at last, the Garden. 
Spring and summer visits in 2017 are already on our schedule, and I am eagerly awaiting them, 
asking myself how could it happen that I haven't been here before.
