Home made log home

A neighbour is storing his retirement home at the farm. He hand stripped all the logs and needs to build it temporarily to store it until his property is ready to build. He has a lot of hours in it so far.

Good morning to all.. Thanks JR for reposting the pics. Thats too bad about the pictures not showing up. It showed up on my Diaspora stream right away. Is it a pod issue?
KornKob

what a view

My son and and I are hiking in northern ontario. Tomorrow is a long kayak trip with Portages. Today we made it to a peak of quartzite formation of the Killarney igneous complex. The formation is all white metamorphophic rock with areas showing abundant faulting and alteration zones. The entire surface has also been polished to a smooth finish by glaciers making for a great hiking environment.

Here is the view at the top. This is the view of the top of "The Crack". Thus is where the famous group of seven Canadian painters immortalized the canadian north. t/18159327655db2289974970778011258][/url]

Corporate influence over University leads to purging of faculty.

The wider problem of corporate capture

The corporate control in New Brunswick is so blatant that it has made headlines even outside of Canada. But the problem of corporate capture goes far wider than the issue of a “company province”.

There are a lot of organizations that are "Corporate captured". It's all about the money.

Cutting the hay finally. The weather has cleared and we can cut a bunch of hay. It will be dry enough to bale on third day.

@KornKob: So I read this in my local paper yesterday, and thought of you. Hope things are not as bad where you are. Thinking of you!

Hi appaloosa. Southern Ontario was worst hit. In Vineland Niagara area there are some areas not planted at all. We are not too bad here and crops are late but look ok. Had rain last night so I'm hoping to get some hay in on Sunday long weekend :(

Planting some crop before the next rain out on the "back 40"

I was actually planting Camelina in this field. It was in corn last year. We had missed most of the rain but other areas had heavy downpours.
KornKob
Ohhhh :) The result is a very tasty oil with a high cooking point that I saw in a show about food.

She is a Standardbred.

That was cool. My daughter is the horse girl. She has a few Standardbreds that are bred and a few that she races. Some of them she has a share in. Also has a couple for riding Quarterhorses. She has her trainers license.

How does a modern corn planter work

Have you ever wondered how the corn gets planted. Modern planters have been one of the main contributors to yield increases. They plant with excellent seed spacing and depth while allowing faster speeds and good soil to seed contact for fast and even seedling emergence. Corn seeds are planted about 5 inches (15 cm) apart with a seeding rate of 27,000 to 35,000 seeds per acre. A 16 row planter would average about 20 acres an hour during the course of a day. That would average 700,000 seeds an hour.

How about politics with no Party Line

Are you tired of Canadian Party politics and being stuck with inept leaders. This is an interesting concept. They are working on a federal version as well.

"The beauty in the Consensus Government system is that the government cannot do anything without sufficient support from the Opposition...meaning a consensus has been achieved. No omnibus bills and budgets under Consensus Government. Each is presented and discussed and amended until consensus is achieved. They could be replaced by the Legislature. No elections are needed other than one every four years."

"The current party system sees all three major parties having had a turn in government, and all three having done a poor job. Further, when one party replaces the other, they stop pet projects of their predecessor and launch their own. When they get tossed out of power, so too do their initiatives. And so on it goes! A colossal waste of time and scarce tax dollars."

Heirloom tomatoes

We have a bunch of tomatoes that are waiting patiently for warmer weather to arrive so that they can go outside. Notice how they are all trying to look out through the windows.Image/Photo
KornKob
The weather has been dismal lately. My houseplants are getting cabin fever.

It sucks. We moved the tomatoes onto the deck a few days ago and today I picked up a new cover for the greenhouse. Want to tarp it this weekend and get stuff planted,,, finally!

The sun was bright and faded the colours of the photo. But it is early spring and the grass is just starting to green up.

That cabin location sounds sweet!
We live an hour north west of Toronto. Lots of rolling farmland here and small towns. In winter it is southern edge of snowbelt. From here north they get progressively more snow until you get to lakes. This year they were buried in snow and the fishermen had to put extensions on the ice augers to get to the water(because of the cycles of ice-snow-rain-ice-snow-rain). We also have the Niagara Escarpment nearby with tons of hiking,biking and other fun things.
Ohh yah, lots of time with my favorite dog(german shepard) swimming, fishing with self made stick-string and a hook. A boat on a string made from cobbled up 2by4 and 2by6 Lol. It weighed a ton.

Hey, I read White Fang too. I think I was in grade 6 at the time. My son graduated from 3 years of Mining Engineering and he has been all over the Northwest of Canada doing everything from prospecting in the Whistler area to building small drill rigs completely flown in by chopper in the Yukon. The last number of winters he worked in northern Alberta supervising a crew of 25 guys and heavy machinery clearing and prepping natural gas pipeline right of ways. He has been way out in the wilderness in the winter. Two and half hour drive from camp just to get to job site.

March is going out like a Lion

Winter doesn't want to leave. It growled at us yesterday and last night. This is what we have this Sunday morning. Had at least 10 cm of fresh stuff plus some freezing rain on the branches.. Image/PhotoImage/PhotoImage/Photo

Haha. That's the scary part. It will go to -11 here tonight but not above 4 all week:(

GO Saunahouse

https://www.gosaunahouse.com

Went to test drive a portable sauna yesterday. Normally you would think to find this in the countryside somewhere but not this time. It was set up in the back yard of a little coffee shop in Toronto and for a small fee people were booking 45 minutes of hot sauna. It could be set up in a short time anywhere and can seat 4 comfortably or 6 intimately:-) Comes with a real wood stove, seating, a tempered heat (cooler)area inside the main entrance. It was fuelled with a wood stove with rocks on top and steamed with water and a few drops of Eucalyptus essential oil. A very pleasant atmosphere and lighting inside and it was super hot and smelled great with the essential oil.Image/PhotoImage/PhotoImage/Photo
