It's a frugal day on the farm. The leftover turkey carcass is boiling in a pot to make stock. Turkey soup for dinner tonight. It smells wonderful combined with the bread baking in the oven.
And leftover wood from the barn renovation project is getting installed as shelving for the cellar in the basement. The concrete knee walls were still there and plenty of canning jars were left behind, too. Only the shelves were missing. Now all I need is something to harvest.
Yes, I realize by building that many shelves I've probably cursed myself to blight and drought for years to come. But I'm hopeful, always hopeful.
