Nice surprise visit yesterday from my old friend and Spencertown neighbor Cathy Grier and her poodles Etta and Lily.  They are on an extended road trip looking for a new place to live.  Ben wanted to be friends but the dogs were far more interested in the rabbits.  57,68,36,0,C

clean sweep

The Field Lab - Sat, 2016/02/06 - 5:10pm
Been slowly picking away inside the greenhouse for the past month trying to clear it out.  Rick came out today to help with the final sweepdown on the first half.  Over the years, mice have managed to move 2 wheelbarrow loads of sand out from under the pavers.   51,64,32,0,C

Been awhile since I've had some Canadian visitors.  A nice long chat with my new friends and "fellow airmen" Larry and AW.  Both of them served in the Royal Canadian Air Force and AW was a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam war...and has been coming to the Big Bend since 1956 (3 years before I was born).  I invited him to try out my paramotor when he turns 90 next year.  46,59,29,0,B

Don't be a gun nut...spreading ridiculous rhetoric does not help the case for 2nd amendment rights in America.

Here’s a little tickler.
We are almost done with the planning for this year classes and events
and will release the info a little later this week once we complete the finishing touches. But I can tell you this—we will have the Seed Exchange, 10 classes, 2 potlucks, 2 workshops and the Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour. It’s going to be an exciting year with lots of new stuff to share with you. Check back in a few days!

  • Shittim, the plural of Shittah, which is Hebrew for wood from the acacia tree, which appears in the bible.   
  • Micah 6:5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the Lord.6 Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
  • Micah 7:16 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf.17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee.18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.

Deadline for a government mandated product.

The Field Lab - Fri, 2016/01/29 - 4:41pm
The Yahoo homepage had some nice reminders all day today and I found this graphic of the fine schedule.  Git yer "affordable" healthcare by Sunday! (FYI - being forced to buy health insurance does not equal affordable healthcare)...and use eHeath because the $850 million government website still has flaws.  I wonder how long it will take before the fines for not having health insurance will grow to the point where they are actually more than the cost of insurance (and where do those fines go?).  My guess is that the Obamacare system will implode before that happens.  60,71,33,0,B
