Life in the Tiny Russian Village…

The garden must be done!

Three times is the charm as I use our new little tiller (6000 rubles cost). It is amazing how good this tiny thing is and it just destroys the ground. I dug up lots of rocks, rags and trash. This area is at the barn and it was full of animals for many years. The worst thing that I kept finding was strips of a very tough black cloth. About a half dozen strips tangled up the tines of the tiller and forced me to have to stop and unwind them. Just like sucking a rag up into a vacuum. They were buried deep and not rotted at all. Not sure what they had been used for, but they were everywhere…

The eagle is at 30X optical zoom and not the clearest. But he or she was watching me from the distance, as it sat near the river. They are monstrous birds…I see two most of the time and they have a nest nearby…

This morning I will finish the potato patch and start on the kitchen garden at the other home. No more freezing and it is time to plant the gardens…

We will have onions, garlic, beets, lettuce, carrots and of course potatoes…

Going to rain this afternoon, therefore, I have to get some things done this morning. First though, gotta walk and wake up. Walking is important and it helps keep the heart good…
