Ok, if you were never a Little Feat fan then the title doesn’t mean much. Co-founder Bill Payne was arguably one of the best piano blues rock musicians to grace the airwaves. Music aside, here in Homerland it is field prep time.
We are clearing (flailing) a 120′ x 30′ plot in our main field for a high tunnel. The chickens will live in there during the winter. Hopefully they will get a head start on tilling the soil before we plow in the Spring. By the way, the BCS tackles this sort of work with ease. We couldn’t be happier with it.
We mentioned the burnt red Fireweed in the last post. The ridge where we live is loaded with Fireweed fields. Here’s a sample of what they look like now.
So when do you think you are REALLY rich? We feel pretty good when we pick up a high tunnel. But… leave it to Homer to give you a cold slap of a wake up call. Two mega yachts anchored off the Spit about two weeks ago and are still here. It turns out one is the Feadship Lonian and the other mega yacht is the support ship with toys and extra crew.
This is also a great time to be visiting the Spit. The majority of the tourists have gone home and the weather is fantastic. We take our dogs for daily Spit walks and are thoroughly enjoying the end of summer.
Be well & dream green!
