Thankyou mzgarden for your comment.; Maybe what I should do is keep a diary when we move back to the farm and how we live there. It is different than our winter quarters. There is no running water. although we had a well dug last summer and throw a bucket down or use a pump with a generator. There is no electric but Bill plans to install a solar panel this year. . We have a tiny wood stove 1ft x 2 ft. and I wash clothes in a bucket. Our cabin is 10x 12ft with a 12ft x 8 ft sun porch. We could live there year round except it is all hills of varying degrees and would be hard to walk on in the winter. The cell phone doesn't work there and neither does internet. I have to come up to the main road where our trailer is to have access. Thanks for the idea. Our whole thing is about keeping life simple and uncomplicated as possible. My Grandma was born in 1880 and raised me from 67 yr to 80 years. I grew up only knowing the old pioneer ways and so did Bill. He spent a lot of time with his Grandmother growing up. She lived to 92 yrs, I think that may be why we find the fast pace and materialism of modern life so frustrating. Farming growing up Bill preferred working with the horses rather than tractors and grew organically when it wasn't popular. After we found each other it has been quite the adventure, You have a nice day.LindaI know I've said it before, but I truly enjoy your posts. Even when you have something difficult or frustrating to share, some how you are able to do it in a calm and lovely way.
If you or Bill are seeking a new challenge (and now I'm being purely and completely selfish), sharing the detail steps you take to plant, tend, harvest, prepare and store particular things would be wonderful. Taking us along on your journey for beans or whatever would be lovely. Hoping you stay healthy and are able to return to the cabin soon.
