Ben has a health issue...

The Field Lab - Wed, 2018/04/18 - 4:18pm

I recently discovered that Ben is exhibiting signs of rectal prolapse - not uncommon in cattle.  My friend Terry Burger (Ben's godmother - she has known him since he was a pup) sent me some medicine.  Her husband Paul is a veterinarian and they are both well versed in large livestock care.  Never thought I would be applying Preperation H to a longhorn's butt hole.  She also sent some Panalog that I have to inject into his rectum with a large plastic syringe.  This should be interesting.  Ben is about to take trust to a whole new level.  I will spare you a photo of his infirmity,  but there might be a video coming soon...  78,85,53,0,W

cross county

The Field Lab - Tue, 2018/04/17 - 4:18pm
Had a traveler camp at TFL Sunday night.  Tobias Foglia was looking for a rustic campground out my way and ended tenting it right behind my house.  He was pretty beat having just peddled 65 miles from Alpine.  The perfect overnight guest - he brought his own food, cookware, stove, and bedroom.  He has been cycling cross country since he left Boston last September...on his way to San Diego.  After his night here, he was planning on a couple of nights down in the national park before continuing his journey west.  89,97,56,0,B

Biochar workshop and Miso demo update

Home Grown New Mexico - Tue, 2018/04/10 - 5:11pm

The first two Home Grown New Mexico classes have been completed. Both were great!

The first class pictured above, a Biochar workshop by Michael Reed was on March 25 down in South Valley, Albuquerque and the participants learned about biochar, what it is and watched how to do a burn to make biochar and then took a tour of Michael Reed’s property.


The second class pictured above, a Miso workshop by Nao Sadewic, was last Sunday, April 8th here in Santa Fe. It was great learning about koji, miso and other Japanese foods. We had samples of different foods made with koji, a slide presentation and a demo on how to make miso.

the shower is occupied...

The Field Lab - Tue, 2018/04/10 - 2:55pm
Just discovered this nest in my solar shower a couple of days ago.  Looks like I am back to sponge baths for at least the next month.  Would hate to disrupt this family as the nest is right next to my pump and one of the parents is always on the nest.  I will be live streaming video on my YouTube channel every afternoon til they hatch and leave the nest.  This is a Eurasian Collared Dove.  Since I have been watching them, the father tends the nest during the day from about 10 AM to 6 PM and the mother takes the night shift.  71,79,53,0,B

FedEx snafu...

The Field Lab - Thu, 2018/04/05 - 2:23pm
FedEx was supposed to deliver my hard white wheat 2 days ago.  I got an email that said it was delivered but I was here all day and they never came to my house.  I filed a claim with FedEx and contacted customer support at Walmart.  Walmart was very accommodating and sent out another shipment free of charge right away.  FedEx finally called me this morning to say my shipment was left outside by a gate a mile away from my house - a gate that has no name or address but plenty of no trespassing warnings.  I told them where I was in relation to where they left my order.  I found my boxes there right after they called.  FedEx bites the bullet on this one for not delivering to the address on the shipping label and just leaving my order by the road - and I get a double order for the price of one.  That is of course if they actually deliver here tomorrow...  79,92,53,0,B
