Ahhh yes,,, shes been helping deciding where the new raised bed is going,lmao, little does she know,
I bought a Pressure Cooker last fall. I've always used hot water bath but the pressure cooker is great, not a bad jar of anything yet.As far as dogs we had a real bad time here last year. I usually have enough veggies to last one full year. Well using organic fertilizer every dog within a 1/4 mile used my garden as a play ground. I am out already. This year will be much different the neighbors will get one notice then that's it!
I am lucky I have a fenced yard.... 1 dog..... am going to be building new raised beds this spring...as far as the pressure canner goes,,I want to learn how to do meats and i hear pressure is the way to go for that. I like water bath for jams and sauces.... veggies to.
I would send the notice out early.
OK woke up Sat. to find horses in my yard, no biggie around here but it opened the gates to speak of dogs. I called the neighbor and he said that was strange since his horses have never escaped before. Well I had the pleasure to tell him of the other neighbors dogs who run his horses because the bratty kids lift the fence so the dog can run the horses.So point is I explained to one neighbor that my yield was about 40% of normal last year because of his dogs and he said they're my g-friends go ahead shot them I can't stand them. The other neighbor just denied her dog is ever out of her yard. LOL And the neighbor whose dog does the most damage yelled and hollered her dog just wants to play. Last yr. her pig dug up about half an acre of my field. Well they are now all aware of the situation.
I have pictures of all the animals in my yard. I really don't mind but it's hard work keeping a garden organic with the weed pulling an hoeing and such. Something will be done this year. I put up about 1500 ft. of fence last spring. I just don't like neighbor conflict and usually stay to my self.
UGHHHH, I know what you mean and empathize, so far I've accomplished a half mile, and still nearly a mile to go over rough terrain, and it's all because of neighbors.One of these days I plan on getting cattle, but not till I'm sure I can keep them in, but it definitely won't be till the price of feed comes down.
My property was fenced in with barbed wire which I didn't like it at all and 3-5 feet on each side of the wire was briers 5-6 feet high and thick. Took me most of the spring taking it down and cutting up the other crap that grew up. Now it pretty well cleaned up. The only thing that slowed me down last year was where I want to put the fence along my road is buried wire and I know in some spots it only about 10-12 inches deep.Instead of t-post I may just hire someone to dig the holes by hand about 18" and cement in 6" round wood post, I have about 6 more weeks to think about it.
To The Top,,,might need it for my canning,lolololol.hope ya dont mind the move,lmao
