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 […]

The Remaining 5%

A question has come up in discussions regarding Cutia Taranului. The question circles around “what do the peasants get out of this” (this being Cutia Taranului) … usually with an undertone that is really asking “how are the peasants being exploited this time”. So, first of all, a great thank you to everyone who brought […]

Hay Delay

For the past week or so we’ve been wanting to hire someone to cut, turn and bale hay from ~3 hectares of our pasture (you need good weather conditions – a few days with no  rain so that the hay can be cut, dried and collected without getting wet). Initially we put it off because […]

Them

There is a fascinating aspect to Cutia Taranului. If you haven’t heard about it yet then it is a CSA (community supported agriculture) type of service which makes it possible for small scale, local producers to sell their produce directly to customers in the city.  In most western cultures food production is largely controlled by […]

Stainless Steel Mesh

We’ve finally managed to track down here in Romania some stainless steel mesh. Why would we need stainless steel mesh you ask? We are collecting materials to build our first solar dehydrators for food preservation. Regardless of the design you choose to go with (except of course for buying an electric one) you are going […]

Mine is smaller then yours

So the other day Ildi calls Andreea and asks if we would like to adopt a dog … one of those small dogs that look up to pinchers. I said no … those are not dogs … and we really don’t need a 3rd dog … and that was that. Then we went over to […]
