Land, Water & a New Economy

Yesterday morning, after charging the car overnight, we got is started and when on a small treasure hunt (we spoke to a person, who sent us to another person who sent us to another person) to a neighboring village to purchase up a small electric stove (from a villager who brings small batches of them […]

Water – Electricity

Despite the irony of the title – electricity was an inevitable next step in the water infrastructure. The basic needs was to get an electric outlet for the pump. However I decided to take it one step further and install additional power outlets that would be available in the fields (so that I wouln’t have […]

Water – Installation Materials

If, like us, you are a complete beginner then figuring out what materials to use that this can be an annoying ¬†obstacle. I was learning about these materials in English and then we (mostly Andreea) had to track them down in Romanian – so it was not just a technical barrier but a language barrier […]

Freezing temperatures have arrived together with clear blue skies and a white blanketed earth. I took a walk up the hill today with Loui (who is still not completely at peace with a leash): and this is what we saw

How to Pile Hay?

The other day Andreea decided to clean out the barn where we currently house our flock. She had setup it up with areas covered with hay which the flock really liked. Over time the hay accumulates moisture, droppings and food scraps and had become … less attractive. So she pulled it all out and dumped […]

Numbers in the Village

We went out to make a few arrangement in the village today. 300 We stopped in the village office building to pay our yearly taxes. There was an elderly man at the payment window. He was holding a thick pile of money all 1 lei bills. I am pretty sure he worked hard for everyone […]
