That is without a doubt the best built and best looking green house I have seen.

I did some seed saving in the last few weeks. Not much, just some flowers and herbs, but better than nothing :)

The Excalibur has been fired up and will likely be running every day for the next 2 weeks.
Here is the first run of Sumac

I have already done one large 9 tray run of parsley and have another one to do as well as another smaller 4 tray run of sumac.
There is plenty more sumac in the patch I found nearby as well as a lot of herbs from the garden (the one thing that did well this year)
I will also be dehydrating other things from the supermarket as they come on sale such as celery, onions, leeks.
I also wanted to try making my own potato flakes...we'll see how that goes.

Finally added the hobo stove accessory to my Kelly Kettle Trekker (KK) which was not part of the kit when I bought it . I really like the KK for fast
boiling of water. I might also buy a larger version for the house so I don't have to use the ecozoom rocket stove for water boiling larger amounts of water , which would free up the ecozoom for cooking.

I ordered a Sawyer Mini Filter for get home bag / fanny day hike pack.
It looked better than the Life Straw brand. I might buy more when it arrives if I like it.
It would be a lot less weight than the katadyn pocket and the price is cheap enough to buy several of them. At home I have the Big Berkey

Bought loads of dry dog food, 4 cases of toilet paper 1ply.

We were in the green house talking to family who had stopped by and it actually got too hot... this was the first weekend in October.
So now I'm pretty sure I have to get serious about a solar powered electric fan as the cross-breeze may not be enough come July and August. The roof is supposed to block 90% of the UV and all but 3 front windows open. We also have screens for the windows and some gardening cloth for protecting plants against too much sun which I'm going to suspend from the roof somehow.

We were putting in the last wall panels and shelves (all 1/2" pwf) when the family arrived but up next is the boxes for the raised beds.
