Re: Using your home/business as a BOL

The property that we recently purchased will be our "hunker-down" location. There is already a well, and we will be adding in solar/wind/manual backups for the well pump. We have some horses waiting to come out as soon as all of the construction projects are done--septic is now in, electri...

Re: What's Everyone Doing Today

Pulled the wood from the sides and ends of the raised beds, and took it, along with my live "varmint" traps, out to the property. Second trip took out the tiller, gas/oil mix, and more of the gardening tools. Also re-assembled the wood and wire run that goes with the hutch/coop and got the...

Re: What's Everyone Doing Today

Fixed the water in the bath/shower at the new place today...the new parts came in, so replaced the valve, added in the part that holds said valve in place, then put on the temperature control and knob to turn it on. After getting everything on and making sure there were no drips, got the water suppl...

Re: CAL.SINKING

This has actually been going on for DECADES, so it is nothing new. As the water is pumped from the wells, the land subsides. I grew up in CA (and escaped from there years ago) but my Grandmother lived in the Central Valley (formerly called the San Joaquin Valley) and the subsidence had been going on...

Re: What's Everyone Doing Today

Today I'm actually having a day of REST! Been exhausted with all the work I've been doing getting things going for the new place, so I've needed a break. So, Church this morning, and now spending a little time relaxing. We sometimes spend so much time DOING, that we forget that our bodies need some ...

Re: An Idea for Burlap

Burlap makes a good shade cloth for your garden plants to help keep them from getting "sunburned". If I had access to cheap burlap bags like you do, that is EXACTLY what I'd be doing with them.

Re: What's Everyone Doing Today

Had to run out to the property in the morning to meet with the septic installers. Then, after getting home, it was time to get dressed up in 1880's attire before heading out to Tombstone for our reenactment duties. Started off with me directing our vocal group from the theater company in singing the...

If you're just going to let it go, what's the point of catching it in the first place? To my mind, the ONLY reason to catch it is if you plan on eating it! Of course, the ones that are too little do need to be released, but otherwise, they're a MEAL!

Re: August 2015 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Is anybody else feeling like a slacker after reading all of Icefire's post? :bored: Ray, ANYONE who is in the process of building a homestead from "scratch" is going to make everyone else look like a slacker, simply because of the sheer volume of WORK involved! I'll be back at it again to...

Re: August 2015 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Started "deconstructing" my garden at the current house and moving plant supports, raised bed frames, etc. over to the new property. Had placed the items over where the new initial garden will be, off to the side, partially under a mesquite (25 feet AWAY from the driveway) to keep things o...

Re: August 2015 - What Did You Do to Prep This Week?

Got the last of the trash from the house over to the dump today. The old water heater has been removed, and the old refrigerator is out of the house (had to take the doors off of it to get it out, then we put them back on, since I'll be using it to store horse feed in.) Also got the empty rabbit hut...
