Default What was your "Prep" for today?

Cleaned out the garden beds. The onions,m and garlic are poking up some green. Put a little mulch on top to protect them from the snow weíre getting overnight. Was able to get beets, carrots and potatoes planted in the ground.

Was able to plant tomatoes, several fresh herbs, bell peppers, jalapeŮos, zucchini, and cantaloupe in the garage under the grow lights.

Iíd never experimented with sourdough starter but decided to do that since itís been difficult to get good bread and the stores are out of yeast. I have some yeast but have always wanted to start a natural yeast starter so giving it a try. Iíd been feeding it for about a week but didnít get very good results.

I believe I made a critical error with it leaving it in a sunny window to warm it up. I think the sunlight killed a lot of the yeast. I dumped all but 3 tablespoons yesterday, gave it a nice feeding and gave it 4 hours on top of a heating pad. Itís been doing well now. Starting to smell yeasty and less sour so getting a more balanced microbe production.

Money in the bank, once at the mill.

Dang that's a nice cedar tree. Western red? Valuable wood you are right. Money in the bank!

My prep for the day:

I split some firewood for about an hour this morning I'm hoping to dry out this summer.

These ducklings are growing like crazy! They've tripled in size in the week and a half I've had them. Craziness.

I don't know what well be up to today, just hanging out probably. I may check around to see what stores actually stayed open that are not grocery stores.

Received 5 pounds of chili powder, 5 pounds of paprika and a pound of white peppercorns. I would hate to run short!

Started phase three of the conversion from junk storage shed to smokehouse. Cleaned up the insulation, animal droppings and leaves that fell out when I pulled down the plywood ceiling and then ditched around the upper foundation (it is a split level embedded in a steep hillside) the runoff was coming over the foundation through the damaged section of siding and flooding the lower level. Finally, cut away the rotted wood and started replacing the floor supports and joists that had been damaged. No, I was not preparing to go to market...yesterday when I pulled down the ceiling I just about choked on the dust from the all the crap built up between the two floors, plus the old fiberglass insulation, so I decided to smarten up a bit and wear a scuba mask to protect my nose and eyes and breath through a respirator.

I will post some pictures of the repair when I finish it, hopefully tomorrow.

Continue with my weekly schedule of inventory checks. This week emergency supplies. Already pretty well updated due to current virus crisis.

Ordered omahasteaks almost 1/2 off sale with free delivery.

Prepped some biscuits for freezer.

Reviewed possible purchase of vacuum sealer with container attachments. Noting a lack of one gallon freezer bags. We have one case left. +I am already using o2 obsorbers and mylar+

Got my first order of instacart grocery delivery. The fruit and veggies were of middlin' quality. some bruising on apples. pepper and squash older than I prefer. But, I am glad I tried the online thing and will do it again. Just noting the lead times for regular delivery are two days later now than my original order.

Long day.... Up early to work out. I have a few free weigths. Wish I had got some more 45 lb plates. oh well...

Weeded the winter garden. It’s an area next to the house well protected from the wind and gets full morning sun. Wife will be planting in a week or two. And we picked some pumpkins growing in the back yard. Home grown, organic pumpkin soup for lunch.

Same here, considered critical personnel by the State. I hate that, I wanted to work from home!

Went for a run, cleaned the chicken coop, had the kids clean the basement. Quarantine is driving me up the wall! Just got told I have to work from home as much as possible.... I do CSI work. My co worker and I locked down our work stations and office areas. I like my space, stuck at home is terrible, I would much rather hunt zombies

Decided to take advantage of some nicer weather and work on my Jeep. When I sold the Wagoneer, the buyer wants to restore it and wasnít interested in the fuel injection, so I removed it. Since my Scrambler uses the same motor and the carburetor was hashed anyway, it seemed a no brainer to put the fuel injection there. Unfortunately the gaskets didnít come off cleanly so I got to practice something I havenít done in a long time. Making gaskets from scratch. So out came the sheet of cork, razor blades, sharpie, and other bits. A little patience and I have two fully functioning gaskets and a throttle body now properly mounted on the Jeep. Tomorrow will be more tinkering.

In self isolation, with our two (2) great grand-children with us (boys).

Teaching them simple practical little things.

Taught them to make differing kinds of assorted DIY popsicles yesterday.

Well that cracked me up and brought back memories, thank you , we need these joyful moments !

I am really lacking in self discipline compared to my youth so I got on my bike and moderately worked out my heart and lungs again this morning , and the last few mornings , trying to gain capacity . Not quite as determined as you Bunkerbuster , I have not stepped on the treadmill in months nor picked up any free weights but just typing this makes me think, no time to get back on that horse than the present. Whoa how far I have fallen . I think self discipline is one of the strongest traits I need to work on.
