I prepped and painted a wall where we will be adding some plants (hopefully strawberries), and made a big pot of pasta sauce to can tomorrow...

Planted the stubs of two dozen green onions, and put down some slug bait. Something had started eating my cauliflower transplants.

Today I worked on home repairs, harvested peppers and shiitakes, saved squash seeds, and bought chicken feed.

Found a free duck house on Craigslist and picked it up 2 days ago. Yesterday I cleaned a 1,000 gallon water tank. That was a.lot of work. Today just watering strawberries and watching how-to videos on You tube. Oh yes, also replenished my kombucha. Easy day today! :D

Nice! Yes I am tired of dealing with water storage, it has dominated my time this last week. I keep hitting situations where I could finish it quickly, but it will take an extra day or three to do things the RIGHT WAY. Generally, I am taking the hit of doing things the right way, but it's exhausting.

A mouse hit the indoor aquaponics last night...little bugger. That's supposed to be the grow bed that's safe from deer and what not. Let the challenges keep coming!

Christian;

How about a prophecy? Here we go:

The Angel of the Lord came unto me and gave a vision of those days. "The animals and plants of nature will become such a pestiferous scourge, that mankind will trap and eat them in revenge!"

How big of a system are you installing? I was off grid five years but am back on now. My system is for post-SHTF now.

Got electric wiring out to the Tough Shed (8 x 24). Got the solar guys lined up to come out this next week to install the solar panels on the Tough Shed. Received a bunch more heirloom seeds.

Nyai added some outlets to the wall, and I finished making a macrame shelf to fit the little 4 inch depth...and now we have a happy growing wall with basil
