You don’t discipline a fearful dog

Yesterday started out as a regular day. We did a neighbor round in the morning – starting with fresh milk, then some vegetables from Ildi and a short visit with Maria. By the time we got home it was too hot to work outside so I continued working on the Cutia Taranului information system. I […]

Cutia Taranului & Rain

We had a very wet spring this year. We had plenty of rain but less early warmth. Corn grew early and fast however vegetables were slower to grow. IMPACT1: Field grown vegetables have been growing slower then last year. But then the rain stopped and people got religious … some more then others. Some people […]

Food Rules

As a followup to Food is not Cheap post I came across this interview with Michael Pollan (from 2010) who, if nothing else. has more credentials and has written a book about the subject: Michael Pollan www.thedailyshow.com

(Untitled)

It’s been a long day and it’s also been a while since I’ve written a daily update … and so here goes 🙂 Some days are, like this one, really long and don’t leave much space or energy to write … other days are long and restful/sleepy and also don’t leave much space or energy […]

Go Around: Cutia Taranului & Romanian Politics

Romanian politics have managed to infiltrate into my consciouess through the very thin and filtered funnel of information that reaches me from the world. I know very little about Romanian government or politics. I don’t know more because every time I’ve thought about learning more I realized I don’t want nor feel a need to […]

Big Water Ouch

The day before yesterday I was watering our raised beds. We shouldn’t need to water the raised beds but we do because (a) we built them late in spring (its best to build them in the fall) so they did not have an opportunity to fully absorb water; (b) because they are still not properly […]

Rich

Today I took a break from physically demanding work and stuck with physical work … in the shade … in the workshop. I finally cut the first board that will be at the top of our bed headboard. It is the top board – and rounded … a huge radius … but I got a […]

The “I Told You So” Bread Post

The first peasant-boxes that have been delivered to both Cluj & Bucharest have been of baked goods – primarily bread with an addition of something sweet and/or something salty. They come in two sizes and most people ordered the smaller box. It includes  two 1kg loafs of bread. Romanians eat a lot of bread so […]

Bread Party in Cluj

Last friday was a city day (first in quite a few weeks). We chose that day because it coincided with the first delivery day of Iulian’s bread-boxes in Cluj. We started the day by loading the car with 140 firebricks (quite an effort) and then went to pick up Iulian from the bus station and […]

Laptop Chick Warmer

On to less serious matters … the weather has taken a sudden change … from a hot summer day it went to cloudy and humid … and now stormy … winds and rain. In the midst of this all … a small 3 day old chick was left behind outside … found cold and shivering […]
