    Quote:That would work for me! My daughter is near you attending WSU, and since she's originally from the west side and is temporarily transplanted near you, then I think just by osmosis and proximity that the boundary between Idaho and Washington is very thin!
    So, my vote would be yes.

    Quote:lol I gotta do something. The poor thing is so over grown and top heavy that if its not tied up it falls over on itself... I have a really nice pare of large clippers, but I'm not so sure that even those are heavy enough to cut through the thickest stalk... I have already taken off the obviously dead wood, but have been afraid to cut back much of the living, as I have NO clue how far to take it back. Do I prune it like a tree and only remove 30%, or can I do a more drastic pruning and remove 1/2 or more...?

    Can you tell I have no clue what to do with this rose? lol I had someone that I thought I had hired. Paid them and everything, and they never once touched this rose. But every year I get blooms. All through spring, and into late fall. This plant was still budding out flowers in late december of this past year. Very pretty, medium sized, pink roses. The humming birds LOVE them for some reason.

    Also I am not sure if this is supposed to be a bush or a climber... It has nothing to climb onto, so I am guessing it suposed to be a bush, but really its more like a small rose tree.

    I would dig it up and put it where it can climb on something. Maybe put it next to the deck. It is still dormant now. It should do just fine.
    Alternatively, you can build some kind of gazebo around it, or tarin it to grow on a fence or something. It is no use having to drastically prune it a few times over the growing season. If it is a climber, let it climb.

    Thats the thing... I really dont think its a climber... It looks like the typical rose bush that someone bought at rightaid as a bare root plant... You know the ones I'm talking about, they come in those cardboard boxes with some bare stalk poking out through a hole in the top... Just over grown and old. Stands strait up, unless the wind is blowing, if the wind is blowing then it starts to topple over.

    I'll take some better pictures when its not pouring rain. Probably tomorrow.

    There are a few others who are closer to Kingston, and I think there is someone down torwards gorst... Or maby farther than that.

    Really? Cool. I just haven't had enough chicken community experience to get a good idea it seems.

    Grrrr, I can't get any chicks till May. It's making me impatient and more and more likely to come home with chicks I didn't mean to get. [​IMG]

    Quote:Shrub with the brightest yellow flowers(a bit rangy). First of the spring bloomers. We have pussy willow and forsythia both on right now. But we are in a bit of a pocket.

    O I got it, Google is a wonderfull tool. lol The only flowering plants I have are my rose, and all these hawthorns.

    Google is great!

    Quote:Watch out... I just wanted 8-10 chooks and now I have a mini fridge that I think will hold up to 164 eggs. Oh what fun one can have! [​IMG]

    Yes, fun would be the appropriate euphemism for trouble. I wonder if my husband would notice if I turned his computer room into an incubator room/chick nursery?

    These mini fridges fit great under a counter or say... desk top. Practically unnoticeable!
    Just tell him there are worse habits to have like... Diamonds!

    I've been reading the Forum for a while and decided to say hello. We live in Auburn - almost at the Pierce Co. line. I had chickens when I was little and again about 10 years ago. They all passed of old age. I really love chickens and thought it was time to get more. I now am the proud mom to 3 BA (pullets, I think about 17 weeks) and 6 BA (supposedly pullets - although 2 might be roos - that are 7 weeks). They are right now in two separate greenhouses and my husband is building me a new coop. It should be finished in a couple days. I understand I can't put them together until the little ones are much bigger. I can make a little door in the side of the 8x12 greenhouse and attach a run for them until then. I am so looking forward to those nice fresh eggs. Hi, everybody!
