Ok, never heard of that. Please explain more, like what's in it and the process? I'm super curious as we love peaches and I'm looking at buying a box soon for canning. My husband grew up on a peach orchard, so he won't touch the store canned ones.

We're in open range so who knows but we do have water for them so hoping they come back. Particularly if we have fencing up and they aren't claimed after we talk with the livestock commissioner.

Got about 3/4 of an inch of rain and some cooler temps last night. Grateful that we didn't get any of the severe flash flooding that the Grand Canyon and Vegas had last night. We had some periods of intense rain, the dirt roads are slick with clay and the wash is running this morning. We are definitely are learning to drive in this slick clay, it's nothing like anything we grew up with and sticks like crazy. We'll be getting mud tires for our f350 soonest, just so we can get in and out of our property and we have a decent road compared to many of the other roads in the area. #grownostr #nature #rain #monsoon #Arizona

Thank you! Probably not this year, too many projects with just moving onto raw land in the last year. Eventually I'd love to be able to do some natural dyeing.

Our property seems to be a place the stray livestock come to visit and now I'm apparently watering two donkeys. We've been seeing them off in the distant for a few weeks but couldn't get close enough to tell if they were wild or livestock, well yesterday they showed up on our property and were the sweetest things and I was finally able to see that one was branded so I guess I'll be calling the livestock commissioner to see if he can contact BLM to figure out who owns them. The brand is a BLM brand and she's 6 years old but we can't figure out the rest of the symbols which say what state and area she came from. We're thinking the light one might be her adult baby. I gave them water yesterday and refilled a bucket today in the same spot and when I got home from dropping my husband off for a work trip the bucket was pretty much empty with more hoof prints around it. I'm kind of sad I missed them, they were so sweet and just wanted pets yesterday. I'm really hoping that they've escaped and not dumped, though dumping a branded animal just seems stupid. If they are dumped I've already have a new home for them with some friends who will spoil them. #grownostr #donkeys #livestock

We are securing it to the ground with land anchors or possibly concrete footers with anchors between the strut and the footers. We need to consult with the customers some more. The panels will come off to move it and then because it's strut it's super lite and then two people can carry it. They'll only move it in a SHTF situation and they want to hide the panels deeper in their 40 acres.

This was a first time seeing a White-Lined Sphinx Hummingbird Moth. I'm not a fan of moths, they creep me out, might have been from working at a ski resort year round. End of summer beginning of fall we would get an invasion of moths in the lodge and I'm totally creeper out by them even more than I used to be. But this was kind of cool but still creepy because it's a giant moth!! But I'm grateful that he was pollinating my squash and yesterday I noticed that I finally have female flowers so squash is in our future! #grownostr #permies #permaculture #gardening #homesteading #moth #pollinators
