it only seems fitting to post here,AND WERE OFF.a 20 year plan is soon to be fulfilled,by years end we will be living in our own community built on our own land.we started way before ''tiny homes''where a thing.our homes are all but set up,wired for lights,plumbed for the cisterns and the pens and coops are ready for stock.the best part is the woman whom has chose to life with me is on board.her first visit was a week past,i told her to prepare to go ''roughing it''and she was ready.im not sure if it was the lights after dark or the roman style bath house that tipped her off to a different definition to the rough,but it was not what she envisioned {heheheh].it is getting late in the grow seasons here,but we have ways around that[THANKS TO GOOFBALL LEARNING]we hope to have our green rooms and hugelkulturs seeded before thanksgiving and my aqua culture systems running by years end.as luck has it we are in Oklahoma not the frozen north,so i hope to be able to have a better production rate than the village there has[we dont have no dig times of the year,our ground freeze is closer to 8 to 18 inches].there are 3 family's set to take this adventure and a few others under consideration.if any thing Paul has shown it can be done. so we are going to do our part to support his quest of world domination through learning and shareing the way of the goofballs.

here are a few.the main front yard is paved with sandstones that are abundant there.the firepit is a doubled walled pit that is special[we worked glass in it]and the one luxury i am really looking forward to haveing grown in is the ''gazebo'' or arbor.it is for the grape vines the walls in that area are getting doubled so we can put herb beds in them

well,days are shorter but the year is drawing to a close.
Ive got a bit off''schedule''i was set to build my smoke house but i always walk the edge lines of my property in the morn with my coffee,when all of a sudden my potato thief arrived.caught in the act.so instead of building that day it was cleaning and processing for me.sorry if this upsets some but this is part of our food stores.a blessing it will be.i did manage to get a few of the spring beds set and we found a great gift inthe woods.chick of the woods.and found more reasons to carry a weapon around when walking look at this tree.the 30th was a black out moon and we heard some thing being drug through the woods,we went to see what was out there and found nothing but a warm urine smell,the next morn i found this tree.thats not bullet holes thats a claw that pierced the tree.and then the rain.it helped start the new collector.    and then i started a new rock carving''the gate keeper''
