  Property Line
Cut a path along the property line to see where the survey staub was. Cut about 150 back into the swamp through briars, bushes, branches and bugs. Found the staub and put a 10 ft PVC pipe on it so it could be seen easily. Now, if I could only get my goats to clear all of it out...

BTW, the fence is right on.

  Good fences make good neighbors?
My neighbor is angry with me over a perceived slight and now says that a fence I constructed along our joint property line is on his side of the line and wants it removed. Don't know whether to push this to the limit or not. I rechecked the fence line and it certainly seems that the fence runs right down the line to me. So much for good fences and good neighbors.

  Always something...
Had back surgery two weeks ago. Has a tendancy to make the weeds in the garden grow faster. Look to start working on them, though, starting Monday. Seems like there's always something...

  You have to start somewhere
When we got married, we made a choice as to what our lifestyle was going to become. Once the kids came, there was no question. We try to live as sustainably as possible, which in Ky isn't very difficult. We love it, and our friends think it's a fun topic of conversation with our animals, gardens, etc. But I tease them that we're getting the last laugh. Good for you.

  A well that's not a well that is a well
Living out in the county we have to rely on our own well for water. We had a 4" well drilled down about 324 feet to provide for house and homestead. Needing to provide protection for the well-head and water lines, and wanting to foster a rustic look to the farm I built a wellhouse that appears to be an old well with hand pump. I used rough cut boards for the sides and they provided plenty of protection this past winter when the temps got down into the 20's. Of course I had to provide some heat inside, but it was a minimal electric heat wrap on the lines. Now all I gotta do is finish up the shingles, but that will have to wait until I heal up from back surgery.

Most farms here are not conventional farms, but rather jsut farms. From the backyard in suburbia to the city lots to rural small acreage to the so called conventional farm, we all are stewards. Glad to see that you are tending towards the heritage bred. Keep up the good work and have fun with your little place on this earth.

  What is this...?
This is not a conventional farm, per se, but acreage with a heritage. It is a place where we can build a self-sustaining homestead that allows us to share with others that which we don't use... like all those extra eggs! We are stewards to the earth and as such seek to live a natural and holistic life and to maintain the heritage of those who have gone before us. We also seek to preserve heritage breeds and plants for the future that is before all of us.
