Simple sourdough bread in the rocket oven.

Today, I made some firewood racks to house more wood behind the Fisher Price House. I modeled them after the ones in front if the house. To insure they don't collapse on a toddler (or other kind of mammal) I screwed the top into the house studs. Pretty sturdy.
Hugeling in a blizzard! There's nothing quite like tucking in seeds on a freshly mounded bed for a wee winter snooze. Hope I get to see what this'll do out at Allerton Abbey.

My 12' is conjoined with Mike's 24'. It is demarcated in most the pics by stakes or a change in mulch appearance. Final size is a couple feet larger than the requirements in each dimension to accomodate the curve and satisfy the demands of the site.

Dug and built with the excavator.

I fixed gaps in probably 200 feet of junkpole fence today at Allerton Abbey. The individual gaps I filled probably amounted to 30+ feet. Wanted to eliminate any debate for certification. The pictures that follow show each section in need of repair, followed by its corresponded repaired section.

This week at the BB20 event, I had the pleasure of preparing pancakes for 9 ridiculously lovely humans. They were a bit in-and-out as they were starting their day, so I have a pic of everyone who ate, as well as individual pics with their food in front of them.

Wee little rocket mass heater rake. Next time I may make some design mods, but here it is.
