another good couple of days for making more preps.although it was a little rainy and cool.we cleaned the cattle hooves .after we hauled them from the east we piled them on the ground and covered them with compost for about 3 weeks.then we uncovered them and took apart the hoof from the bone.not a pleasent job,but it has to be done.after that they were put in the sun on the roof to dry.only to have it rained on.so we had to rinse them by hand eah one at a time.then they were ready to fill.we use the cowhooves because we cant find enough cowhorns cowhorns would be our first choice.we are making the prep bd 500.we fill each hoof with fresh cow manure and bury them in the ground until spring.i dont know how many other prep makers use the hooves,but we will find out how it turns out in spring.we havent buried them yet because we have to go to our jobs,but we did fill them and they are ready to go in the ground. we will definitely have pictures of them.im anxious to find out how many we have.
we turned the second batch of maria thun's recipe of barrel compost and added more of the preps.the first batch needs to stay in the pit longer.
this was a good couple of days to do these biodynamic things because the signs were in leo on a decending moon.
it was time to bury the 502 and dig up the 501.we also preped our 2 compost piles for the csa garden for next year.so all that is left to do for the biodynamic season is to bury the 500, put away the 501.this winter we will collect deer bladder and pluck the flower heads off the yarrow we harvested this summer.i seen the deer here close up the other day.it is more of an elk than a deer.he was magnificent.i would call him a red elk.dark red and mean looking.you can hear them at night calling to each other.sounds kind of creepy.much like the american elk.
we found another organic pioneer from tokyo.our friends from kyushu,denis pillaud and his wife yoshiko attended a workshop there and told us about them.japan organic agriculture association.they have translated some of our favorite dvd's about biodynamic and organics into japanese.we have asked for copies.
we will be giving a presentation about biodynamics and its relationship to the environment in obihiro on november 9.we will set up a displat booth and give out and speack about what we know about biodynamics and try to recruit members for our csa.i havent talked yet about our csa yet because a lot of planning is going on now and there is lots more to organize.this winter i'll talk about it more.there is lots to do to plan for this presentation.we will give a 15 minute speech and try to make a positive impression for our movement.we will let you read it here after we present it there.please try to come if you can.there is going to be a lot of people there interested in the environment.we are interested in converting to solar power and bio diesel fuel and many other topics.we are probably the only agriculturalist there.but who is closest to the environment than farmers.fire, earth ,air, water.i look forward to this chance to give a talk about biodynamics to this kind of crowd.
after this event we will be planning for the winter soltice party and the 12 days celebration and organize a study group and then the winter workshop in jan uary.so the preps are almost finished but there is still a lot to do for the movement,which is our mission.of course we still love each other very much.we try to live by loving what we are doing loving where we are at and loving who we are with.love is all we need.everyday brings us closer to the evolution of humanity.rudolf stiener's theory of evolution is very interesting in that it makes you not afraid.there is hope and there is love in the end.but it is now the time to show and give our love to each and every human being.humans control the future of humanity.what we do now matters for the future of the evolution of humanity.that is why it is so important to heal the earth so we can have a place for humanity to grow stronger for the next stage of evolution.check out new website rudolf steiner audio.com.you can hear some of his lectures and books.
thank you to our friends and neighbors.we lost a good friend to an auto accident and will be inheriting her 40 silky chickens.so with all this planning there is still work to do to get ready for winter we have to move her chicken house which is a greenhouse to our farm.we have to build a temporary home for them until we move them here in their greenhouse.so we will build a greenhouse onto our house for solar heat and plants and storage for the chickens until the greenhouse for them is set up.her village neighbors have volunteered to help tear down the greenhouse and move it here.but we have to set it up ourselves.so thank you neighbors.
got to go now.the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter.so until next time.love and peace.ben.
