    I have a little bit of cooked rice I will bring her tonight. I will sit with her and watch her munch it up.

    You are too kind. It is a ton of work. I love my bike. Even the heavy grocery getter.
  6. I was just hoping that maybe if I gave them enough choices.
  7. I had to look that up. We want to see your arrangements.
  8. You are welcome. I had a freak out moment last year. I thought we forgot. We had so much going on with the build that I thought we missed it. I called our tax lady in June freaking out. We were living in the box and travel trailer with limited record accessibility. She said, "I would never let you forget that." She is wonderful.

    I don't know how this posted. I had two ideas for a thread. Didn't realize I posted this. HAHA Yeah, I'm taking an alternate route now. I need to climb over a mountain, but very few cars and congestion. I was pretty tired last night. It is a 1000 ft day at least. That seek is heavy and the studs are still on it. Slow going.

    Goats

    They crowd the fence when I go in there. They totally surround me. As soon as I come in, they run to their feeding zone. I unlock the feed area and grab hay and grass that i toss over that board that they are all looking over. Valentino the male is very sweet. He is less aggressive than the big females. He is molting or losing big chunks of fur. I want to brush him, but she didn't leave me a brush or anything. I pulled some of the molted fur off him. Something killed all of her chickens. She got this one from someone that wanted to get rid of her. She said she has a new flock coming from another person that is getting rid of their chickens. I may bring her a treat tonight. I have some lettuce.

    The white one is pregnant and not super tolerant of me in her space. She tries to ram me. They are really big goats. Lamanchas. The male is very sweet. He is a small dude. They tried to eat my pants. I am lucky cause I get to watch them for 4 days this week. There is a lonely chicken too. She gets very talkative when I show up. I sat with her on a hay stack. She jumped up and hung out with me. Very curious of me.

    No more bus for a while. Super yay.
  13. Definitely pondering a burrow.
  14. I don't have any. Maybe when my trees get bigger, they might be a problem. We have birds of prey that dine here. Also, the neighbor cats seem to be mighty hunters.
  15. Did workplaces close in expectatin of the storm? I wonder if people thougth they still needed to work.
  16. The vids I saw are terrifying. Glad you are ok, @jsharrwick
  17. The veg garden is in a jail. My baby trees are in jail. Pretty much everything else is supposed to be "deer resistant." That term makes me laugh, cause they eat that stuff too. I planted a crap ton of alfalfa, and clover. That should give them something else to dine on. I don't fret about them too much. They are part of it all. I might put some flowers that they would devour otherwise in the fortress. I like roses, but I can't have them here. We caged up the grape vines. I just want them to get bigger vines, and I will uncage them. If I have enough, at some point they would be full, right?

    It's a gift. The pellets are all over the place. I planted alfalfa by their bed sites, so they can have breakfast in bed.

    I planted about hundreds of bulbs right after the big chipping event. Now I am filling in gaps. The spot where the junction starts, the iris are huge. LOL That is where the water starts to come out of the system. You can tell cause there is more activity there. This patch of soil was totally ravaged. I quickly planted and covered it with chip. When I planted the bulbs, I put in a scoop of bone meal. I think bulbs like that. Crocomisia is on the way very soon. That is going in next. About 60 of them. The clover is all starting to come up too. I am very satisfied with the work I did. It is so tremendously satisfying to create this. It is my tiny ecosystem. I love it so much. I planted a bunch of Mt Hood daffodils and I am quite excited to see those.

    The leech lines are actually pretty deep. If the bulbs die, oh well. So far they are looking really good.
