When you don't want to have to whiz into a bottle whilst sitting in a tree stand because you needed your morning caffeine fix. A few tablespoons of crunchy goodness will hit the spot.

It’s been a while, so here it is:

1) garden and green house all planted. Mostly “old faithfuls” but with a few additions this year: leeks and Brussels sprouts.

2) added 4 more apple trees (BTW, they are $39 at Costco!)

3) bought a new vehicle (4Runner)

4) making arrangements with an acquaintance to get some bee hives on our property

Putting up 800 watts more solar this week. Up under the eaves, vertical, on a south facing wall. Just to bump up power in December.

Over the last few months...had some windows replaced in our house. The old ones were falling apart and have really noticed a big difference already with the new ones.
Farmers markets have started up outside and am now attending two different markets as a vendor (selling pickles, jams, jellies and sewing/crochet items). One market we have been attending for 4 years now and other is a new market just starting up.
Gardens are all planted and coming up nicely.

Installed a clothesline

Purchased a booster pack for the truck

Canned a metric ton of rhubarb (felt like a metric ton anyway…)

Felt blessed to have AC in our house during this historic heat wave.

2 solar panels 175 watt each for a total of 750 watts for the rv.
second solar charge controller.
Should be just enough to power a tiny house now if being conservative on use.
