visitor's day














Had 3 visits today.  First was my friend Carla from Fort Davis along with her friends Connie and Ginny.  I met Carla when I first moved to the area and almost 7 years later, she finally made it out to see TFL in person.  Next up was my friend Rik and his son Aaron.  Rik first stopped by back on May 29, 2011 - so a few things have changed since then.  Was also surprised this morning to find that the second raccoon finally came back to visit and be captured.  Glad I left the trap set.  Although I had blocked where they had been entering the greenhouse in back - I made it even easier by leaving a ladder by the front.  70,81,59,0,B

Paint their tails or ears or something to make sure it ain't the same coon coming back again and again.

No need...their tails were already marked. The first one I caught had a dark end of tail...the one today had a light end. Check out the photos from Oct 2.

Hope you took them at least five miles as the crow flies to release otherwise they may beat you back home. For sure anything less and they will be back in a few days.

Hey John,
I've been watching on and off for several years now and loving it.

I dunno if you've come across Geoff Lawton re permaculture/regeneration/food survival, but this link to gabions in the desert is fascinating.

regds,

speaking of Mr. Lawton ,got an email from him a couple of days ago about a swale project he discovered built during the depression in Arizona. Same piece of desert. Impressive to say the least
