Hey Rebecca! I just moved to Newberg, OR and am looking for a property to start a mini farm and tiny house community permie style. It's awesome to see your progress and the successful rehab of your new farmhouse
I have spent some time last year woofing both in Corvallis, OR and Bothell, WA to familiarize myself with the climate and plants. I've completely fallen in love with the PNW and beautiful ever present greenery!
I'm taking a lot of time now to meet the community and other like minded folks, visit farms, and familiarize myself with the area. I'm surprised by how many people and small farms have already embraced permaculture!
Just wanted to throw a line as a possible connection. I'd love to hear more about your place and your vision!
oh and your mushroom does look like it might be a chicken, though the light doesn't seem to make it look very orange. pores should be yellow.
