    Farmerjan's journal - Weather

    I think there are governors on the windmills but they will still shut down above a certain MPH. And they need a certain MPH to start up as well, maybe 8 or 12 MPH?? When my solar arrays were put in 5 years ago the guy said he used to do wind but they tended to be unreliable so he stopped. I...

    Good thing he isn't "unscented"!

    Ridgetop - our place and how we muddle along

    It's called a Lazy boy because "boys" just sit in them and fall asleep watching TV. The "girls" do something useful while sitting so Lazy Girl would be a misnomer.

    I suspect that the more you can strengthen the muscles around your knees ahead of time the easier the post surgery recovery will be.

    Ridgetop - our place and how we muddle along

    Yep, the "He is paying us the cash value." sentence immediately followed the shelves topic and immediately preceded the "which kid is buying their insurance" topic. You can see why my feeble mind didn't keep up! Um, copper yes, aluminum isn't worth the time to sort it out from the regular scrap...

    Chickens really- My adventure into Goats

    We seldom have temperatures over 90°F. I'm OK with that. ;)

    :hit Any idea why? Clearly the reward for staying in his bed isn't enough to win out over the "fear"/"manipulation". I'm glad we didn't have that problem. Good luck!

    Or nothing they CARE to do. Carry some spray paint with you and if you spot their cars paint "PUPPY DUMPER" on them ;)

    A NEW DIRECTION FOR THE OLD RAM

    That all makes sense to me TOR. I guess "hobby farmers" can just raise what they want and ignore the costs (including me and my 2 gelded alpacas and 20 hens, 2 of which are over 8 years old) but a real farmer needs to know how the business is going and work to improve profits to a reasonable...

    Maybe you need a game camera to catch the people who are dropping the pups off. MIGHT get lucky.

    Maybe the name change will make her more amenable to sticking to the proper fields/pens. Oh wait, NOTHING stops a river from wandering!

    Ridgetop - our place and how we muddle along

    Cash value of the shelves as shelves or scrap metal? Scrap is worth almost nothing, maybe $20-$30/ton. Those would have to be some pretty heavy shelves to be worth even $1. Not even worth the fuel to take them to the recyclers unless you have a LOT more or have some copper.

    Coffee anyone ?

    Our highs for the next week top out mid 50s. Same here, rain all day today. That is OK, I have some wiring to do for the EV charging station. Finally got the hole through the wall yesterday and ran the wire in the conduit. Wire in the crawlspace went in a few days ago. Need to connect them and...

    A Jesusfreaks tales of farm life with four kids

    Castor oil would be good. It helps with scaly leg mites by smothering them but it is also antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal. Gets rid of warts too, though it takes time :D

    Oh, Wren is a horse trainer!!!! Maybe you need to let her have the lunge line so she can do it properly.
