I’m finding that the more vacation I have, the earlier I wake up. It’s 0616 and I already have the dogs walked, and have had my second cup of coffee. I took a walk over to the Dodge dealership nearby and had a look at some of the trucks. They were nice and all, but the one I looked at was 80,000. If your wondering that’s almost as much as the whole homestead. It served to strengthen my resolve to never take another payment again. That’s for sure.
My current reading has me thinking about compost again. I have to increase my yield if I intend to improve the soil at the homestead. To that end I’m looking at making a shredder to go after 14 day compost. I found a great video online where one was made from an old lawnmower and a 55gallon drum. I am thinking that is the best way to go.
The boss lady has started a meatloaf in the slow cooker with potato and onions
We have also had the good fortune of oaks overhead. So naturally we look for acorns.
The meatloaf! It’s killing me. It’s all I can do not to eat it. Must wait til dinner.
Dinner was amazing, and now I’m staring at two very exhausted dogs
Campfire time, and we got THE worst wood I have ever burnt. It never fails that I have problems with Maine pine. Every time.
Until next time…
