Oh, Goody - Now We're Trendy!
« on: January 31, 2013, 11:51:43 AM »
The $1,300 Chicken Coop and Other Signs That Backyard Farming Is Getting Fancy - WSJ.com
Can chicken feed, canning jars and garden hoses feel chic?

Absolutely, say retailers cashing in on the "modern homesteader" craze. As more urban and suburban homeowners take up backyard farming, items like chicken coops, beehives, gardening tools and pickling and canning supplies are getting more stylish and pricey.
I'm not all that sure this is a good omen.

I predict most of them will bail out when they discover the amount of work involved long term.

Then, low priced used stuff!

That's the way I used to buy restaurants.

This, of course, is the flaw behind ivory tower types' calls for gardens on the roofs of the urban high rises they think we should all live in, so that Gaea can survive unharmed by those nasty hooman beans.

Not like a garden atop an urban highrise is going to come anywhere near being able to feed the number of people who live inside the building in any case.

Facts to a liberal are like kryptonite to superman.....
Yes, I'm a physician.  No, I'm not YOUR physician.  Nothing I say here is medical advice.

Do I treat Glocks like I treat my lawn mowers?  No, I treat them worse.  I treat my defensive weapons like my fire extinguishers and smoke detector - annual maintenance and I expect them to work when needed

I work with many, and they deal with facts in this place of business.  It is reality that they do not handle well.  Just sayin'.    ;-)

This is a joke right? I can build a coop that will out do that thing for  whole lot less money. 258 bucks for a spade? I can buy a whole lot of spades that will do the same thing at ACE hardware for less. These people have more money than brains. Just a bunch of status seekers. like others have said wait until they find out it is hard dirty work or the trends change and this stuff will sell cheap.
