Would permies.com be considered a publishing site?/ Is permies.com considered to be a publishing site?

It is purely a financial decision. If we were pre 2019 inflation/prices I would not think twice and would just buy chicken from the local store. Rising prices in the last year have forced me to shop at Walmart (which I do not like) but I do it out of financial necessity. Chickens can be left for a time with food and water. Dogs really cannot. My neighbor a mile down the lake leaves his dogs and within half a day they are wandering around my property having escaped their kennel (if he even bothers to kennel them). When I'm at work I'm gone all day long. Dogs do not really like that. Chickens could care less.

+1 to the Edible Acres recommendation.
Y'all, in ~4 years growing comfrey and letting it flower, I swear I've never seen bees sampling mine. Does anyone else have this observation? We have great bee activity everywhere else. Mostly carpenter bees. I just wonder if a variety can lack the nectar, or scent, to attract or feed pollinators. As far as I know, mine are Bocking 14.
