I know at the home place when I was get up there a patch that was never weeded  and it produced ok, I bet it would have been better if we took care of it.  I have two plants along the fence that I found this year as I cleared out brush, maybe after clearing it out I can get more!

There's a guy in my community who's been making leather sandals for decades and I love mine to death; if he made boots it would be even better. Every village needs a shoemaker right? :)


It sure would be great to live in that village and be a shoe maker!

I have spent over a year trying to learn shoe making from the you tube and what I can figure out from taking old shoes apart.  My family are hard to fit for shoes, I have made several nice pairs of minimalist shoes but two weeks ago I finished these work boots for me.  I prefer a stiff sole when using a shovel.  Ihesr are a size 6 eee and non existant at any shoe store.  All leather and lined with pig skin.  The sole is biltrite and the heel is cat paw.  I used an ad I found in the internet from a 1935 ad in Chicago mail order catalog.

Also, longer logs and branches on the inside helps.  

Also, making those longer logs and branches on the inside go side-to-side sometimes (not always just lengthwise) helps.  

This video does a great job of explaining "angle of repose" and how to counter it



The reinforcement material in our case is the wood.



Thank you for sharing this, plant roots and other layers add strength also I figure!

Everything has finally been finalized as of a few days ago, the new owners are now making repairs and getting things sorted out and ideas planed.

Yea, My mom was telling me that the winery was up there, I guess they have guest quarters also.

As far as the house goes it will need to be gutted and a roof, the foundation and half basement is solid.

This had an orchard, it is very over grown so I do not know if it is producing now and if so to what extent. But it used to be abundant with apples, cherry, goose berries.

Thanks

this is the creek, it comes from Rock Creek state lake which is about three miles north of Parks, it is spring fed and just north of it is a state operated fish hatchery.
