Nearing winter, each day brings in lesser amounts of food to be processed.
Separating vegetables from compost is accomplished on a stocked freezer
In the following image are seen the day's harvest separated as:
Chicken's rations = lower-left
Beans still requiring further cleaning and culling = lower-center
Kale = lower-right
Compost = upper-left
Tomatoes = upper-right
Less than 6 sickly Apples were
produced 2018 (I lost count though)
It was hoped that the Apple Tree Planted a couple of years back would be
producing by 2018. After reviewing an autopsy of the branch that refused
to give up a lone apple, it is decided to prune the tree in preparation
for the coming winter.
Starting of the Multi-purpose
Soon the stove will be in full-swing and left lit to survive through the
winter. For now, the wood-burner is only used when temperate weather
permits. Seen below in the photo on the left are clothes drying in the
background. The pot in the upper-left of the photo is producing distilled
water for the battery banks while bread warms in the pan.
The Distillery Collection
The production to consumption ratio is finally reached a plateau of
success, which means electricity is no-longer a scarcity and over-use is
Much less water is required to maintain the battery banks when the banks
are not over-burdened with a demanding load.
September starts the beginning of the Fennel harvesting process
Seen below are Fennel Seeds left to dry in trays, heavy rainfall altered
the cleaning process somewhat
