We are at the top of a hill, well away from streams, creeks and rivers. In the various spots we leased before moving here we experienced devastating flooding and knew we wanted to skip that.
It is windy here. We have lost a few things..our first 2 cowshades just splintered in high winds. Chickens pens had to be redesigned to withstand 60-70 MPH winds and still be able to move daily..easily.
Some days the winter garden looks like this in the morning. The fabric row covers detach from the hoops and flap in the breeze.
And we contemplate how to keep covers on..the wind and cold are what kills..how come some are still covered and some aren't..windbreaks, a farmers best friend..
