My goal is to provide a post every day, but this legal stuff is growing big enough it probably deserves its own blog. Farming in western washington, especially in the flood plain, is very difficult due to the regulatory environment. I'd love to be able to have a farm blog that was entirely about the practice of farming, but it's becoming clear to me that the farm regulation stuff will overwhelm the other content and should probably be seperated. I'll still update here, just make it purely farm related, not farm-regulation related like the new blog.
This from a guy who wants to do pasture raised local food. I had no idea that the regulations would consume so much time.
You will find the new farming regulation blog at farmingwa.blogspot.com or click here
The first entry is "When is a manure lagoon a wetland?" and will post at 4pm on 10-7-2009.
