Big Village Day…

yum_coffeeFilling the wells, weeding the garden and cutting apples for the dehydrator. Kinda busy today and will try to post later. Some mornings I need to get up at 2 a.m. but just not able to. It will get warm again today, so I have to get everything done early, then I can goof off…

I have a dehydrator for food and will most likely use it daily now. I have found that drying fruit and veggies is the very long term way and I will dry turnips, rutabagas, potatoes, apples and what ever else I have time for. I will pick up more zip lock bags at the Big Village and will fill the cupboard with goodies… 😉

The first batch of apples will be done when I get back from the Big Village and then I will start the second batch. I need another dehydrator, but money is tight so I will work 24 hours a day for the next month and dehydrate everything. That way I have a winter supply of food ready to go. One thing that I have never found here in Russia is powdered eggs. If I could find them, I would be able to not leave for the winter, I could stay for at least three months holed up, when the snow got deep to my chin and temperatures dropped to -30 degrees…

Next on the agenda is too start splitting wood. When the heat breaks, I will start that job…

I see the days are getting shorter, nights cooler and I also see winter starting to wake up. Fall is about a month long and then Old Man Winter comes riding in and plays for half a year…

I just love Russia and her seasons (? What seasons? Except Winter!…

Talk to you later!
