Time to Think Planting…

Time for Planting; putting seeds or young plants in the ground to grow...

TimeTime does fly and this past weekend, Sveta went to the village again to finish the paper work on the village home. The laws changed several years ago and she had to get all the paper work up to date, to keep from having ownership issues at a future date…

While I was slightly (Okay a bunch,) jealous of her going and I had to stay home with Boza. I have used the time to decipher what I am going to plant this year, at the village. It will be items that easily store for the winter in our Moscow home…

Vegetables like beets and turnips for long storage. Then items like radishes and grasses (parsley and such,) for short-term immediate use. Potatoes are to hard on me, as I am a diabetic, but beets and turnips do not bother me and besides, Sveta loves them also…

Therefore, beets and turnips it is and maybe just beets. For Russians have no greater desire for anything but borsch to eat at every meal it seems. I am finding myself starting to feel the same way, as I checked the bin for red beets today, to make a beet soup tonight…

Maybe just sugar beets and red beets, they are very easy to grow and between the two, you can have lots of cooking fun. This is what I am deciding as time flies, as I am getting anxious to get to the village and spend half a year there…

This time we also are going to buy another or two dehydrators for fruit. I think three dehydrators going full-time this summer, will give enough dried apples, cherries, currant and raspberries to last the winter. Last year, we gave them all away and what we had left, we ate in a few weeks…

In our village, apples are abundant and I am going to store them for the long winters in Russia…

This time I also am going to get out the pressure cooker and can some items up for the winter. It is time to become self-sufficient and travel the path of being off grid more and more everyday. The world is getting a never-ending psychosis of deadlier proportions, even as you read this…
