I have a young Oberhasli doeling that won't be big enough to breed for a while yet so he should be around for a while. Emma decided he was pretty nifty and was bred within three days. Oberhasli babies should be arriving in early March!
When I got the official paperwork, only the walnuts had value. One of the trees only brought $2.62 for the entire butt log. I'm heartbroken I tore up my woods for less than $2,000 (the value of the other trees) but I'll know to tell others not to harvest anything else other than walnuts. The younger trees will grow and I'll replant. *sigh*
I had to water every day to keep these going, but the straw bale planter performed well in the drought. I planted flowers IN the bale, but these peppers were planted in the inside of a cube of bales in rich dirt. I've already set up another VERY large strawbale planter. I like them! Looks like I'll have to replace the bales every year but that's just not a problem...
I love my new snips. I found them at the Asia store (a local ethnic grocery - mostly Asian). Love them.
