Agrarian: of or relating to farms and farming…

Agrarian: the reason why Russia will still be here after the U.S. collapses. This old Soviet painting is still viable. The women I saw feeding the fish village guys yesterday, dressed just like this; (Article…)

I have said in the past that Moscow is not Russia, not the real Russia. I say this even more now that I have lived almost six months in a tiny Russian village. Russia is lucky, she has a world that is still agriculture based and to survive the future, that is the only way to be. If Moscow was Russia, then Russia would be in almost the same teetering position that America is in. Thank god it is not Russia, though many Muscovite’s grow food at their dachas and such, they are soft though and will suffer the most at a collapse. Village people are not soft…

I have done some serious thinking about this subject of agrarian and have seen it first hand in a whole society. Russians are the opposite of Americans when it comes to agriculture. Exact opposite; I would venture to say with at least 90% of Russians growing a huge portion of their food themselves. That is compared to 90% of Americans who could not plant a garden if their life depended on it. Russia still has her roots, but the U.S. has lost her roots. Agriculture is the roots of any society, for without it, we starve…

This image below is a small section of our large village I talk about. This village has at least 10,000 people in it and what you see is typical streets of that village. Each home has a huge garden and actually a field attached to their home to grow food in. People look closely; These are not tiny gardens in your yard! These are huge fields tended by the people, by their hands only. They still use a horse and plow many times and they weed these huge gardens by hand. I know, I watch them do it…

Growing food in Russia is serious business and no one goofs off about the subject. This is a life and death issue, therefore they grow food or die. What they grow does not cost money at the store and that money is able to be spent elsewhere. The community does better and such. Food is not something that should take all your money to buy…

You may hibernate all winter, but you work your field all summer…

One thing that is grown in huge proportions is potatoes and potatoes are available year around, for everyone has them stock piled in cellars everywhere. You know, Russians do not have food stamps or other government programs to feed the hungry and such. They feed each other and help each other, this is how it is done, you grow food and do not rely upon the stores to have it in stock. Stores virtually do not ever have potatoes in them, for why should they? The people grow them…

I write articles like this for multiples of reasons, but a big reason is maybe someone in the U.S. will wake up and see the path that they are steamrolling down is not a very good path. In fact that path is detrimental to the whole country and unless changes are put in place, a small catastrophe will crash the system fast…

Russians are worth learning from, for they have been through all the crashing and bashing of a failed system, but instead of embracing Russians and learning, we are trying to destroy a country that would be good friends with us and teach us how to survive a major crash of our financial system…

I am learning, because we are never too old, nor too busy, nor too smart to learn new tricks…

Russians know how to survive and they will. Will you?

Another Picture Day in the Russian Village… (September 24th, 2014)

A wood vine above, I am nurturing for a beautiful fence line…

E72_amethystI finally got my new old cell phone; A Nokia E72 and it came just in time! I had killed several phones here in the village and was down to a phone with no camera. I am rough on phones and carry them everywhere with me, to allow Sveta to get hold of me when ever she needs to. I also need a phone, for I have had six heart attacks back in the U.S. and need to be able to call for help when needed…

The images today are from that phone, the one you see on the right and it does pretty good. The last phone, if you remember was a BlackBerry and it was fantastic as far as a telephone, but took terrible pictures and was so poorly built, that I had to superglue it back together three times. The camera gave out, but it still does a good job making calls. But I want to take pictures of life as I go through it and the BlackBerry Pearl Flip just failed terribly in body strength, software and camera…

So lets see what Nokia can do and so far it is pretty good…

Above: We have maple trees here and they are in full fall glory as I am writing this article. The forest is alight with colors from the Maple trees. This reminds me of home in the Ozarks…

Above: The lake is being drained and either today or tomorrow they will start to take the fish out to sell. We are the last lake and they are emptying them as they work our way. I watched how they do it and will try to get some pictures of them working our lake. I noticed that they pull all the men from all over the lake at this time of the year and everyone works, works and works some more. The fish village owners supply a huge lunch everyday for the men working the ponds and I mean a huge meal. There is about 12 women who are cooking and they have built a big ole long table to let everyone sit together and enjoy a meal. Reminds me of barn raising as I grew up. The women are in long wool dresses with bonnets and scarves on and the men are covered in blankets as they eat, with hot tea/coffee regularly, to get warm (It is cold here folks.) What a great life…

Above: Our home in the Russian Village. I am working in the yard and it is still a mess. Today I have to build several items, one item is a gutter drain stand and second item is a table. I have the wood gathered for these two items and today I will build them. The blue barrels in the image, are the rain catch barrels and they will be put inside the home for the winter. The metal rusted barrels are getting a work out as I burn brush and leaves that were cut up this summer. What a wonderful home to have in a village. I have done so much to revitalize her, but I still have so much more to finish her for full-time living…

Well that is all today and I have two fence posts to dig and a table to build and a support for the gutter system. Therefore I need to get going and work, instead of gabbing on the internet…

Have a nice day, for I will for sure… 🙂
