High Tunnel

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

New High Tunnel at acorn. Just finished the roll up sides. We had some problems with these sides blowing in the wind and tearing through straps, which are intended to hold them down.  This time we used some old drip tape, attached by washers and screws. We will see how it holds up to the high winds. Now we have to figure out why the roll up sides collect water…when rolled up, with the roll being on the inside of the tunnel. Now on to finishing the removable east and west sides. More information to come.

Spring is Almost Here

Monday, March 14th, 2011

The first signs of spring are upon us.  Daffodil flowers are blooming, warmer weather has come, and we are very excited to have our first set of ducks.  Cute ducklings, that will follow folks around.  These ducks will live at our newly restored pond, and acorn will enjoy their services.  Our population of animals is ever increasing: 10 ducks, 2 goats, 20 hens, 2 roosters, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 1 guinea pig.  I hope to see meat rabbits in the future of acorn.  There is also talk of dairy goats, a Nubian breed.
