Everything is crazy here. 50lbs of grain is 30, 3 string bale of hay is 60! :epAnd to top it off we can’t even get more then a few t post here… they are sold out. Inflation hurts.
Yes it does. Tighten your belt, its only getting started. Stock up on groceries because there will be higher prices than you have ever seen and shortages there too. If you don't grow a garden, it would be a good time to start one. If you need help, I'll be glad to assist you. Join the garden sister site www.theeasygarden.com I'm Baymule there too.

I'm leaving around noon to go to San Antonio, will spend night with friend Sarah. Tuesday we are going to the Alamo, the shrine of Texas freedom, going to do the river walk, ride the boat and have a good time. Wednesday morning I'll be up early and go to Llano to pick up my 5 new ewes, then come home. I can't wait to see my new girls! I'll see y'all later!

I have no idea where that lady got her 15% from.
From her imagination? I hope your discount doesn't come out of her next paycheck!

The guy with the used 7' posts was going off Home Depot prices. He thought $6 for his used T-posts was a deal!
They were, compared to the current $11 price at HD! Of course he probably bought his (from who knows where) long ago for less than $6 and was making money on them.

My local "chain tractor store" (which doesn't sell tractors ;) ) has the same $6.99/5% off each for 400 or more price you got. Yeah, let's skip the big box store for farm stuff. Maybe someone needing 2 to string up beans or something would buy those. Certainly not to fence a pasture.

Since several other employees were at the register and were agreeing with her, I don’t think so.

Weird, no other stores are giving 20% discounts. Glad you made that find. Makes it worth all the gas you spent to go look at the used posts.

No discount of 15% plus the 5% bulk, around here... I asked too... Would have gotten the number needed just to have when DS starts rebuilding the fences on the farm... plus a few for me to use around here with the future fence.....:hit:idunno:idunno:(

Oooooh... wave about there in Llano, that there is where my ancestors hailed from... well... between Mason, Llano, and Castell.

That country always pulls at my heart strings.

Look out for porcupines!!!

We have a tiny yard. It’s like the size of a 2 car garage. We do have a garden going. We mostly do kale and tomatoes. Hot peppers grow well here.

The well. It’s real shallow, people toss money it it. It’s dry, wonder if it’s been filled in or being so shallow, it went dry.

We ate at Joes Crab Shack on the River Walk. The San Antonio River winds through town. Both sides are lined with old and newish buildings, restaurants, hotels and such.

We rode one of the boats down and back up the River and had a good time.
