Thingfish23 is “documenting the rather daunting task of returning our 75′ X 660′ lot to some sort of natural equilibrium. [His] goal is for [his] house and . . . family to exist in a harmonious way with the plants and animals that have been forced to move elsewhere due to poor stewardship on the previous occupants’ parts.” It’s clear he’s putting a lot of thought into this, and learning as he goes along. It will be interesting to keep tabs on him.
