deluge

The rain has stopped for the time being, and I’m so grateful.  We’ve gotten somewhere between 6 and 8 inches of precipitation this week.  I know it could have been worse, but it’s still just too much.deluge 2

Nothing has been blown over, but there will be repercussions in the garden.  Time will tell.

There’s nothing like a deluge to show you where you’re at.  For instance, this deluge revealed to us the substandard nature of our livestock living quarters.

My thought for this week is as follows:

Necessity is NOT the mother of invention.

Do people falling from cliffs invent airplanes? (No.)

Do starving people create agricultural innovation? (No.  They often eat their seed supply.)

this is our funky goat house. oh well.

this is our funky goat house. oh well.

Necessity is the mother of funky contraptions that will do until we can come up with something better.

So be it.

  1. Animals are resiliant .They don’t care if its a pretty place just dry …food and shelter is what they need. . Our place was mickey moused for many years as we did not have the funds for fancy barns and fencing . It took many years to build the homestead and proper housing /fencing. That is still ongoing … 40 years later . My horses appreciate a dry warm stall but also are fine out in the rain and snow for a while . There is plenty of tree shelter and forage .
