I really like the look of a yurt but the high wind do pose a big threat. The yurts with the dome on top is cool to catch a peak around the property while in the loft.

Paul Ewing wrote:We have a small 10 acre field in the corner of our place that is starting to get overrun with prickly-pear cactus. I know a lot of it is because of soil degradation from overgrazing the native grasses there and am working on controlling the grazing there better but I really want to get the prickly-pear gone again. We didn't have it until a few years ago and it is spreading more each year. The standard answer I get is to use Surmount on it or a mix of a couple other herbicides, but I am trying to cut all chemical fertilizers and herbicides out. Only thing I can think of is a shovel party every few months and burning them.

I like to use rock salt for vegetation killer/control. I use the rock salt pellets or make a brine ( rock salt in a barrel and add water to solidify ) mixing every few days to help break it down. I use a watering can or sprayer to apply to my desired area. Hope this helps it works for me on a smaller scale. And if the weeds or vegetation is stubborn I use rock salt directly. Good luck on your journey friend keep on growing........

My product was very good to start off with but after several weeks of use they all lost their non stick properties even though it was seasoned.. The bottom of the pan became black and junkie ... my friend also bought a set of stone pans and they had the same experience that many others have had. You may have better luck with a quality set of cook ware but I bought a mid priced set to begin with.

Gonna try White Clover and sub-clovers, but read they might not be good for Goose/Currants. Goumi works good too also for this edge and deer resistance.

Do you think it is the thorns on the goose berries?
