The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

This season's color

Orange dog collar

Pantone may think the color of the year is Emerald, but Lucy's fond of her new orange collar.

Most of the hunters we know are careful to get a good look at their "deer", but we didn't want to risk Lucy getting shot.

Despite her new styling wardrobe, Lucy's still a tomboy and is always the first one to the top of the mountain.

I once heard of a farmer who had a lot of city folks who would come and hunt in his area. He ended up resorting to painting "COW" in orange spray paint on the sides of each of his cows, because apparently it's difficult to tell the difference if you're not from the country.

The Pantone color for 2012 was tangerine, so you're just a year off.
