Day in the Life

Online Shopping for Food:
These are the carrots the online grocery order provided for us! The black is not dirt, it is rot. If I peel enough off I can slavage some edible carrot from these. This is why I am not ordering fresh vegetables through online shopping if I can avoid it.
Veestar Strawberry:
This is one of the two new strawberry plants we purchased, $4 each. This one didn’t get eaten by rabbits, and this is the one and only strawberry it bore this year. I took this photo this morning. When I looked out the window just before lunch, it was GONE! Grrr. I should have picked and eaten this morning, but I wanted it to sweeten in the sun. He who hesitates is lost they say. This is why I consider wildlife competitors for my food, really, they are.
Steam Juicer:
There were eight bags of vegetable scraps in the refrigerator’s freezer, so it was time to make broth. This is a steam juicer, another wow piece of equipment as far as I am concerned Put water in the bottom pan, and whatever you are steaming in the top pan, which in this case is frozen vegetable scraps, simmer for a few hours and there you have it, broth, or juice if it is fruit in the top pan.
I compost the vegetable scraps after steam juicing. But I save the fruit in the top pan when I make juice, and turn the fruit that is left into fruit leather, so good!
Hot Dog Buns:
Hot Dog Buns have been on the “lets try this!” list for quite a while now. Today wa the day. The recipe made a dozen 100% Whole Wheat Low-Sodium Hot Dog Buns (about 35 mg sodium per bun).
1000 liter Rain Tank:
Attila’s birthday present. He is easy to shop for!

“The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.”
Herbert Spencer
1820 – 1903

The effect of this phenomenon seems to be cumulative.
