...stuff happened yesterday.....alot of stuff.....on Saturday too! um, so I got to drive the Falcon! Nothing like driving 5 tons of truck (except operating Judy's plumbing), Scott D. got his first day of work in (thank you Scott D.!), and I gave yet another Ant Village Tour.
Yesterday we had well issues so we staid at base camp while Fred negotiated with well demons. Josiah, Clayton, Scotty D, and me went up on Peach Plateau to mulch a bunch of fruit tree seedlings planted some time ago -they just sprouted this year!
We went to collect burnt junk pole in the afternoon and got covered in soot; someone suggested the river, so off we went to wash the soot off and to cool off!
Later, Josiah and Jennifer shared their shelter design for their deep roots plot.... ...then Scotty D. got in on the Himalayan yoga before we all crashed out.
Yesterday brought a brighter perspective as the kickstarter is totally doing hella good [url=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/paulwheaton/greenh]help us take it farther![/url
We used Judy to bring water for paddocks at base camp and to Allerton Abbey, did junk pole, started work on the wings of Alterton Abbey, and worked on the last few sections of filling in junk pole -which I might add, is nearing completion- maybe three more loads of junk pole!
Clayton shared his design ideas for his shelter at the lemon tree site just before Himalayan Yoga.
It started raining early this morning and is still raining -really nice for all the plants and the little trees we mulched!
Scotty D left two days ago (his girlfriend was too far away); we'll miss him. Jonathan is leaving this weekend; he left us some good ferments!
I watered apricots, did chop and drop, moved part of a berm for the well work, and collected rock for the patio between the FPH and the pantry. Clayton and me started working on making sure all you kickstarter supporters above $100 get your live interactive video feed from Wheaton Labs like we promised.
Yesterday saw more concentrated nest labor as usual (no posts this time); seems taking pictures every now and again tends to interrupt the nice stack of things I want to do (more later on in this post).
Fred noticed a something about our well pump house. The top collects a great deal of water. Since the well house is underground, the top is a metal lid....I'm very curious about how much water collects every day during the summer...let's see what happens!
Here's a video of some random person driving our tractor ;]
