Articles and Images: As is the default once anything is created all articles, photos and drawings are copyrighted. If you would like to use any of them, please ask me by email. I will generally say sure! However do not use my photos without my explicit written permission as that is a copyright violation. For true non-commercial use I generally just ask for a link. If you want to use them commercially (e.g., brochure, web site, ad campaign, book, etc.) I will require appropriate payment. I ask that you don't steal and you do give fair credit to the creator. If you do use my works without my permission then I may sue you for usage, damages and attorney's fees and you will have nightmares of being chased down a steep mountain by wolves and 1,000 lb boars gnashing their huge razor sharp tusks in anticipation of catching you. Avoid bad dreams - Don't steal, just ask and be respectful.

Comments: When you leave a comment you are automatically giving me, my blog and any assignees permission to publish that comment on the blog and in any other form. You retain copyright to your works but you implicitly give permission for me, the recipient, to publish the content. If you don't like that then don't leave comments. The same holds true for emails you might send with questions or comments. This is how the system work. If you later want your name removed from the comment I'll probably accommodate you but I am not likely to delete old comments.
DisclaimerNothing here is a recommendation or advice. These are merely reports of what we've found useful. Use good sense and confirm everything with your own research and testing. Farming isn't a franchise of stamping out pink plastic pigs. You will need to adapt things to your own soils, climate, resources, management style and other factors. Don't use too sharp a pencil. There is no magic fix. Grow slowly. Void where prohibited. Walk on the grass. Watch out for turds.
ColiphonThis blog is powered by WordPress[1, 2] which I strongly recommend. I write my text on my Apple PowerBook G4. For photos I use a Casio Exilim EX-V8 compact digital camera as of 2008-05 (which I have repeatedly dropped on concrete, rock, ice, snow, dirt, mud and water). Photo management with GraphicConverter and Photoshop. Before that I used Fuji FinePix (which died, was replaced, died again...) early Casio, Nikon CoolPix 900, 950 & 990 (great models) digital cameras and previously a Canon A1 SLR (fantastic and rugged but heavy) film camera with good old Kodachrome ASA 25 (my fav) color slide film.
Okay. Let's be real. There is no privacy on the Internet. Cookies are collected and transmitted. Logs are accumulated. The reality is every time you visit a web site or use email you're broadcasting your IP address and other data about your web browser and computer as well possibly yourself. To make it more interesting the NSA is probably watching as may well be other agencies of various governments and corporations.
Yes, if you're diligent and industrious you can use anonymouse and other tools to try and protect your privacy. However, unless you actively do that, and even then, don't expect privacy on the web. Remember that email is a postcard open to all who want to read it as it passes through their servers. That said, I am not making any conscious effort to use all that data for evil so take a deep breath and don't worry about it since there isn't a lot you can do about it.
If you're under 13 realize that animal sex does get discussed on this site - we're a farm. If your parents haven't had that discussion about the facts of life with you yet I suggest you explain it to them. Wiki might help. Other than that this site is completely child and adult safe as far as I know.
Typos & EditsIf you find a typo or something that needs editing please email it to me with a sentence fragment to identify the offender and the URL (link) to the page. One of the wonderful things about the web is being able to fix mistakes.
