Harvest: tomatoes, cucumbers, green and chile peppers, basil.
Preserve: pesto. Hatch chiles that were on a killer sale for 50 cents a pound.
Manage wastes: well, I haven’t been very good at this one. We’ve thrown away lots of leftovers recently.
Eat the food: relish, sauerkraut, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, chiles, pesto, onions.
Build community food systems: sold more eggs at work. I need more chickens if that’s to be a viable side business, and nope I won’t be doing that.
I’ve been feeling the need to find land. Here are my requirements: at least two acres, with water rights, near a water source but above flood level, no more than an extra 30 min to my work. Electricity is totally optional as I can work off of solar and wood.
I’m really bummed. I bought a used drum carder thinking I was getting a good deal; I then had to purchase new carding cloth. Now I have a drum carder I can’t seem to make work right because apparently I’ve put the cloth on the little wheel wrong. This after about 5 hours of work between me and Mr. TF. Why o why didn’t I just buy a new one???? Gah.
