There Be Dragons

Dragonfly On Site

We have been seeing lots of dragons flying over the construction site. I wonder if they like the uplifting currents found there on the many beautiful sunny days we’ve been having.

Last night we had a near frost. Crystals on some things but the pumpkins, sunflowers and tomatoes show no signs of damage although they were not covered.

        October/November 2012. “Local Meat Processing: More Humane, Less Expensive Options” is the name of the article. Second paragraph:
        “A growing number of farmers are addressing these issues by taking slaughter into their own hands. One example is the Jeffries family of Sugar Mountain Farm in Vermont, who decided to build their own hog slaughter facility after their former processor retired a few years ago. Because they’re building it themselves, and because the completed facility will be small (so small that it’s sometimes called “nano-butchering”), the Jeffries expect the total cost of the project to be much less than building a traditional meat processing facility–plus, it’s a great way to expand their business and reduce their processing costs.

        I don’t know if it is posted on their website yet.
