Was a nice day for weeding the Garden! Carol and Shelby take care of that part, I get it ready for planting. The Cows would love to visit too! Fence kept them Marmonts out so the plants grew this time. The Peas are coming up nice and have some flowers on them. We allways get a late start but it will turn into a nice Garden soon! Mark H.

Fine garden Hendershot Family! Ray asked me to down load a picture of your beautiful garden, so i did, hope you don't mind us taking your idea to the country with us? Next year we hope to have a garden too! Cute cow looking thru the fence, Wish we had some rocks like those to put around our ponds, but here, you have to buy rocks to put any where. You and your Family are very enjoyable to read about. keep up the good work, have a great day to all of you, Deb and Ray in Louisiana.

You could have all the rocks you want on my place! I have some that are twice the size of a house! I do like the looks of them tho. Just hate it when I hit one when I need to get a post hole in the ground, like where a gat has to go then you hit a rock! Mark H.

Mark,you must've run into the same deal on chain link fencing as I just did-more than I can haul,for free! Don't need it all,but too good to pass up.Already taken down and rolled up.Now just have to get it here and store it out of the way.Liked your hog pen.Plan on trenching some of it in 18" or so and doing the same.That'll only leave a couple thousand feet more to deal with.Dave

I wish I had got mine for free it was around 1.50 a foot for 6 ft tall fence. It sure dose work good for the reason I put it up! The hogs haven't messed with it at all they don't seem to want to root it up either. Course they have to go deep to get to the bottom of the fence. Mark H.

The one's closest to the fence was dropped during the last Ice Age that's where the mormonts live! Those on the horizen are the Cascade Mountian Range in Washington. That is the devider between Western and Eastern Washington. One side is wet and the other is dry. I live in the dry one the Eastern side. I have lots of rocks do you need some? Mark H.

Been busy in the garden our own selves. Dug the potatoes this afternoon and found we had some fair success this year. A few bragger size and lots about the size of grocery store spuds. If you would like to see some pictures of our garden this year, you can go to the free picture hosting site we use to keep the out of state kin folks up to date on what's going on around the homestead. It is Feel free to take a look.

Nice Garden I will have to wait awhile befor ours get looking like that. Our Corn is allmost a foot tall and we hope it makes it this season. It is hard to grow up here at the 2,800 ft level seasons are short. Our beans and peas do real good and Letuse grows just great with the sun we have. Keeping the ground damp is hard and we still have to build up the compost in the soil. No hard wood trees around here but we do have Sage, Bitter Brush and Pine Trees. Mark H.

DeadCarp - free compost?    Posted 06-29-2002 at 21:50:22       [Reply]  [No Email]
Hey, i tried that trashbag compost method last summer - works slick! Mine had i guess mostly pine sawdust and bark, and a couple shovels of cowpies. I hosed them pretty good & rolled them shut. They were so flimsy i didn't turn them, and after a week you didn't want to stand downwind, but sure didn't take long with the sun cooking them off. In less than a month even the bark turned to compost. Wheelbarrow time!

I know have this big pile of cow poop that is fermenting! The dry weather around here keep it looking the same unless you wet it down. Another big load gets mixed in next year. Mark H.
