    Built most of a 6' tall double gate, 12' wide, that encloses my yard. I can lock my GF's husky in the yard, rather than tie him out. Dahlia can have play time outside, with less supervision. $250 in material, and I had the fence boards, milled from a cedar. Since I'm currently renting, it's barely tracked to the carport, and easily breaks down. Just fits the chip truck and f450 beneath it. Trim a few boards top and bottom, and call it good. I think I'm going to use cedar to cover the outside of my F450 wooden box until I build a metal top for the service body. More cedar is allocated to building Dahlia a play house...A project for another week.

    That's great August! Hard to believe it's been nine months. Heck I'm still claiming my wife is lying that it's been six months for mine. Oh, now I'm in a moment of terror. Mine could be mobile soon. Nothing is safe after that!

    Turns out handling the estate will be a mess. Someone else has claimed they should be the executor of the estate and think that I'm going to take all the money for myself. This fellow feels he is entitled to the 15% of the estate for some reason. The will has me listed as executor, and that I'm to get $1000. At any rate, the nursing home gave this fellow some ID and such, despite knowing he wasn't the executor. Hope I get the ID and such tomorrow morning as the guy promised. Hope he didn't drain the bank and left nothing for funeral expenses.:O

    CrookedClove, what size are the biggest chunks you are worried about? If they are just out of a regular wood chipper then I think you are over-thinking this. Just leave them in a pile to compost for at least a year (or better, 2) and use them just like that. If you watch Back To Eden, he plants everything directly into composted mulch straight from chippers. The only stuff he is screening is from the chicken yard, just so he is getting the best of the best. The larger chunks help to create the micropores that aid in gas exchange. As Paul says in the documentary, this is not meant to be difficult, this is how nature works. Screening 300 yards of wood chips certainly sounds like a lot of work to me. Keep it simple. Let time and rain do all the work for you, they compost quicker than you might think. Cheers.

    What about black walnut? Doesn't that secrete a type of natural herbicide? Juglone? If you are willing to spend the money on a useable chipper, and the maintenance that comes with it, surely you could sort out some sort of slanted vibrating screed/screening system? You're already planning some sort of conveyor system to feed the chipper... Putting the big pieces back through a chipper probably won't do what you're wanting: most of those larger chips out of my machine are the result of feeding pieces that are too small to start with, or the tail end of a log/branch, where the feed rollers are not forcing it into the knives- they just get sort of shredded and blown out. Could you put the big stuff (or maybe just all of it) through some sort of roller-crusher instead? Seems like that would make even the big stuff thin and pliable enough to put out with the mulch, and would help it break down faster? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Looked at 5 tree this morning, got the go ahead on of 4 them. Two are monster for me walnuts, doable, if I have good help. We have it left as a clearing for a garden, and if the HO supplied ground help can work out, then it will be a removal. A few jobs in the shop, nothing big. Then I get a call, a friend of my parents passed away last thursday, no family, turns out I'm his executor. Off to lawyers office this afternoon and funeral home tomorrow morning. Hope I can do a good job for him.

    Just for you, Jim.:) "It is important to note that these criticisms of the larger corn system—a behemoth largely created by lobbyists, trade associations, big businesses and the government—are not aimed at farmers. Farmers are the hardest working people in America, and are pillars of their communities. It would be simply wrong to blame them for any of these issues. In this economic and political landscape, they would be crazy not to grow corn; farmers are simply delivering what markets and policies are demanding. What needs to change here is the system, not the farmers."

    Haha! Did you catch the part where the author made a point in saying that this was not a problem caused by farmers and that you guys are the backbone of America or some such.
