We are here at the farm this weekend. Tonight is a benefit for Rose Barlow who is dying of a rare form of cancer. We'll be attending that & heading home before the storm hits. It's either that or wait until Monday and we both have appointments that day.
I am hoping to find out more information about the CAFO siting tonight. We talked to one of the neighbors when we got here yesterday & she seems to think it's a done deal where ever he wants to put it. It is the state & federal's jurisdiction. The county can't stop it. I hope that's not the case.
Steve is working on another wall today. We had a talk last night & he doesn't want to stop working on the barn. He said we'll just take our chances & see what happens. I am still torn. We have put a lot of our sweat & money into this adventure. Like I said, I'm torn.
I went to a feed store today and bought organic yellow clover & organic hull-less oats. The clover is for the orchard and the oats for the new garden area as a cover crop to norish the soil (and for food). Then to the food co-op to do the usual stocking up. When I got home I spread the clover seed (before the rain hits).
Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of our progress this weekend & anything we find out tonight about the CAFO.
Thank you everyone for supportive comments. They are very appreciated.
