Haha ya I sleep pretty hard too I probably wouldn't have woken up either. I have slept through thunderstorms that wake everyone else.

Glad to hear it was pretty much a non event out there.

Thanks for taking the time to check in I know how busy you are.

Well I am glad about that. I guess it couldn't have been too bad then... Or you are a very sound sleeper 😀


Thanks for the update Paul and have a good day.

Hey just wanted to check in on everyone at the lab. I know the epi-center of the quake was nearby. I hope everyone is doing well.

Thanks AJ for posting the videos, and thank you Arthur for making them, I thought the videos were well done and informative, they certainly made me want to learn more. It comes at just the right time too as I have been thinking about making an effort to learn more wild harvesting as it stands my current knowledge is extremely limited.

Super happy to have found out about another wonderful person making the world a better place.

This reminded me of a passage in Ben Falks book where he talks about pasturing his chickens with his sheep all summer and had no fly problems then once he split them up his sheep got flystrike bad. I don't know if the cows will tolerate the chickens climbing on them like these sheep did but it may be worth trying out.

Here is a link to one picture I found on pinterest of Ben's chicken's and sheep:

Wondering if anyone else has tried this?

Just thought I would add to Renate's post about Sepp's system, rather than create a movable shelter for the pigs it seems Sepp has built round wood shelters in the different areas he tends to have pigs.

Here is a link to Paul's Sepp article, toward the bottom there are pictures and diagrams of his shelters:

Good luck,

Hi Patrick,

I found this thread at a sheep forum: http://edgefieldsheep.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5511

They're consensus seemed to be in the end that most dogs figure out how to jump the electric net at some point. I don't have personal experience with this but this is what I had assumed would be the case. Hope that helps, someone on there mentions liking having the dog inside unless the space was very small I thought that was a good response. I still think most dogs could jump some pretty high netting though, anyhow good luck and hopefully someone with more experience has a more solid answer.

I thought that was weird too CJ go figure huh? Personally I would rather have government resources spent on expanding knowledge about bees than flying to mars or whatever but that's just me

Incidentally this was the original link it apparently has lists for each state I believe I haven't checked them all though

Hi Jerry,

I don't know if you found these sites, I did a little poking around they seem like they would be helpful.

*edit* I didn't see it on this lists but I think Bee Balm is hardy to your area as well.

Good Luck,

Hi George and James,

James your fence reminded me of this video of Paul's I always wanted to build one of these after I saw it, it may be of interest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWQ13GCgc-M
