Pink Cloud of Sunset
Sometimes a cloud is just a cloud.
Or maybe it is a girl pig slug wearing a bow on her head and sucking on a candy cane while flying over Sugar Mountain’s southern ridge…

I must spend too much time on this website. I totally see the pig slug.
A couple questions on the greenhouse/pig warming structure. Is it located at the intersection of the different herds’ territories and divided internally to keep them apart? Or perhaps it is for the use of younger pigs as you co-mingle different groups? What is the life expectancy of the cedar posts? Looks like you guys are really moving along based on the banner picture!
The greenhouse is at an intersection of three of the four territories and could theoretically be at four corners with a little gerrymandering. Exactly how we’ll arrange things remains to be seen and will shift over time. It’s a winter structure – in the warm months we’ll grow plants in there.
From searching on the web I get readings of 10 to 40 years for cedar posts. Locals tell me 30 to 40 years. I have red spruce posts that I put in a corral back in 2001 which are still going strong although they do have some signs of decay. The cedar should do far better. I have designed the structure so that there is a great deal of redundancy and when the posts are gone far enough I’ll simply cut them all off above the ground (they rot at ground level) and then raise the building a few feet. I’ve lifted houses before and this will be easier.
I don’t see or ‘get’ the pink cloud Pig Slug . . . but I do get the daily spark. 007 Secret Cleaning Agent. I’ll work on the cloud . . .
