Non-Armageddon Discussion / Re: Gardening/Horticulture/Agriculture Thread

Last summer I bush hogged the blackberries with a rough cut mower towed behind a Honda Foreman.  They were 7 years old, most of them were probably 20' tall, arced over and all tangled.  It was a horrible chore.  Tore the crap out of my face and neck and arms and hands through denim and leather, no matter what I wore.  The entire hillside was either 7 year old pine or blackberry briars.  I would say 3 acres solid with blackberry brambles.  They come back every spring of course, I figure pigs can root up the rhizomes for me.

I always heard goat milk was "weird".

I always heard that goats are escape artists.  The ol' "how do you tell if a fence is goat proof?  Throw a bucket of water at it.  If any gets through it ain't goat proof."

Now we keep a pair of Saanen's for milk.  They are some of the gentlest creatures I've ever been around until they try to head butt the dog.  We use premier1 electro netting and a solar energizer for them. Refer to my previous posts for specifics.

They never escape.  We let them wander free when we move them across the pasture and they just follow us around.  Get kids and touch them and hand feed them.

Goat milk is also great.  Fresh it's really no different from raw cows milk.  I find the flavor changes come from age.  Not necessarily "bad" just goatie!

They also eat a lot but don't expect them to brush hog anything as thick as your pinky.  Up here that means established blackberries and multaflora rose survive the goats (and the pigs for that matter).

I've never tasted goat's milk.  It's something I should do, for sure.

I'd suggest doing a little reading on goats on the homestead. Also, if you're unfamiliar with goat's milk, I'd give it a try. It is pretty tasty.

Goats would be perfect for my property, since all but 1 acre are on a 20% slope!  But I have never been around them.  Everyone I know says they are miserable to try to keep enclosed.  Pigs are hard too, but at least I grew up with pigs and know about them.

Agreed, disarm is already pretty brutal, and when the super-gith RNG abomination creeps up on you, or Dumb F--in' Runner the RNG gods blessed with confounding strength and dexterity in the sparring ring, you tend to discover just how much.

Thats why I want goats, man. Fuck this creeping poison ivy down here in Florida. I dont want to have to eat poison ivy my whole life just so I can walk barefoot in the woods.

Pigs are great. I've never raised a pig and had to butcher it, though. I feel like it would hit me pretty hard in the feels, because they are so affectionate. Florida is overrun with feral hogs, anyway, though not in my immediate area. Too many farmers with rifles keeping the population in check. ;)

ahaaa. Peckerhead FTW.

Man those guinea hogs are popular down here. You know they eat snakes and rats, right?

Pigs are generally awesome!  IF you don't keep them penned up in nasty tiny pens like we did when I was a kid.  I will either let them have the roam of my woods if I can get it adequately fenced, or rotate them over my cleared land and let them eradicate the cursed blackberries.  I could plant good grass behind them.

Ask the Staff / Great Merchant House sigils
« Last post by Miggy on September 25, 2017, 11:42:34 AM »
I would like to see the sigils described in detail for every House. I have searched the help files and forums and found nothing that describes them all. Some are shown in the individual Houses help files, but none of the Great Merchant House ones, namely, Salarr, Nenyuk, Kadius and Kurac. I know I could search around in game and find them but it would be helpful for there to be a list. Please help.  ;D
