Oh, how I miss talking to all of you.
Garden - tomatoes are going well. The BEST producers are the roma tomatoes that I planted square foot, or according to all the locals "way too close". I have a tomato jungle in there. Chickens stripped the broccoli but it's still struggling. Bean plants are tiny because of the acid soil, but there ARE beans. Zucchini is still struggling and producing a bit.
Water - the well has water again, but something is wrong with it.
Goats - we're fattening the kid for slaughter.
Communication - we're still trying to find ways to communicate regularly. When I have access to internet, it's in chunks of a few minutes. Sigh. We'll figure it out.
Cookbook - it's almost ready to be published!
Electricity - we spent $900 on solar panels, inverter, etc. and should have the little bit of steady power that we use soon.
I'll update more. For those to whom I owe letters, the long nights are coming and I will be writing.
Queen of String - the box o' stuff was amazing! I wear those slippers every day now. Mr D's feet are only size 10, though. :D
