Episode 206, Liberty Ridge Five Years In, Part 2

Part 2 of two-part series.

This episode:

  • Making furniture from reclaimed barnwood
  • The indispensability of the basic farm tractor
  • Last winter was the coldest winter so far
  • Living with a well and septic system
  • Backup electrical power
  • What if the stuff hits the fan?
  • What have we learned in five years about living in the country?

Pictured:  Baby chick brooder fashioned from oval stock tank (hillbilly bathtub) and homemade lid.  Be sure to clamp or weight the lid to keep predators out--baby chicks are apparently delicious.

Errata:  I refer to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the surprise winner of the Democrat primary in New York's 19th Congressional district, as an "unwise Latina", which is correct, but I incorrectly name her "Gomez".  Must have been thinking of the Addams Family patriarch.
