Good, living in casper now, working up here making quite a bit more pay than i made in cheyenne, ive moved out now, got myself a little cft trailer up here that i just got into at the beginning of the year
have some sunchokes and a few other plants that are supposed to ship out from oikos sometime soon (hopefully another week or two so it better coincides with my schedule this month lol) and then ill be making a trip down to chyenne to get some sunchokes planted and what not
hoping to get some bulk seeds ordered soon (not quite bulk as in by the ton but by the oz and lb for sure) to help get some more plants growing down there this year
got my wheat and barley in seed trays earlier this week and hoping to get them going strong before i go down to cheyenne

so i got that project down there and now i have a garden of my very own to get started on this year (decent soil to work with from i can tell, i actually used some from one corner of the backyard for seed starting and its dark stuff:D ) and my grandfather on my mothers side has purchased a bit of land just out of casper and is in the process of getting a tractor to play with so if im lucky then ill get to play in the dirt a bit this summer out on his place, which is awesome because i'd love to passify those draws and floodplains on his property, would love to see some grazing that actually does some good on that property(neighbors have been and still do run their cattle and horses through there without any management really and its definitely having an impact on the place imho

so in short, im doing great, thanks so much for asking, looking forward to a hopefully great summer and i can only hope to have the funds to achieve all i want to lol

hows things going for you?

Doing good, counting the days until I can get through the snow drifts and get back to work up there.

Good to hear, all that snow should hopefully do us some good this summer, we had a large amount of snow about two weeks ago that all melted a few days later, and there sure was a lot of water around, i imagine in the saratoga area it will be nice and moist when the snow starts to really melt

So is this where the Wyoming Permies congregate? I notice that we aren't even mentioned on the forum topic banner. What's up with that?

I will be putting in my first hugel bed this spring and have done some vermiculture in the past. I'm also wanting to tinker around with a rocket heater too.

Good stuff Ryan! Devon has some real nice hugels at his place and I hope to make some big ones this summer. We will see if I can get some trees growing in the sagebrush.
