Re: Problematic Quiltros in the Neighborhood

I do like seawolf and use bb's. I use a repeating pistol as I get multiple shots. Doesn't harm the dogs but does send a clear message to them. Also works for the not infrequent cattle that get in the yard.

Re: Taking Wooden Toys into Chile

I believe the restrictions only concern raw wood. I seriously doubt they would even raise an eyebrow at painted toys. I wouldn't hesitate to bring them in.

Re: Seeking Sustainability in the South

I believe so. Been a few years since I checked on it. Might want to visit your local friendly SAG office. Wear a disguise.

Re: Seeking Sustainability in the South

Re: Seeking Sustainability in the South

You mentioned alaskan varieties which compels me to ask; how do folk get exotic and heirloom varieties of veggies/herbs etc here in Chile? Would I have problems with SAG if I start selling purple/yellow heirloom tomatos at the ferrias near puerto varas? Of course that is only one of the 400+ heirlo...
