The surprise along the productivity front stems from tasks accomplished even though we got some rain – that of course generated even more mud, and had trouble with the tractor battery….again.

Well Pack, it was a week of frugality, functionality, and flooding here on our survival homesteading retreat. I could call it a three Fs kind of week, but thanks to the flooding and some barbed wire entangling, there was another F tossed about by a few of our tribe members during work details…but I won’t chat about those outbursts here.…

Harvesting and preserving time may be over, but there is still plenty of hot, sweaty, and dirty work going on here on our survival homesteading retreat.
