big steps in the self-sufficiency front (at least in my head). It took a while (just like this blog post) but this last month we managed to get rid of the electric boiler replacing it with a wood stove one ! there s only two photos but this project was a headache for a while ! finally working, being much more efficient than I was expecting, hot water in 30 minutes with very little wood !
Another step forward was getting rid of the toilet and bidet from the bathroom ! no more black water from the house means we can now recycle all the grey water waste from the house. So now the compost toilet is the only toilet in Paliomylos and it has a newly added urinal for the ladies, giving at the same time urine for fertiliser.
last step… easy, but we did not have the will to do it so far, get rid of the fridge 😉
so back to the normal news.. olives olives and again olives. This time they are Kalamata black olives. There s a couple weeks left in the season, finishing the kalamata and olive oil olives so no… you ll not get any more olive news for this year :-p
the garden has a second flourishing these days since it s been quit summery lately, this time I ll skip tomato and cucumber photos, for some more interesting crops like sesame,
and gogi berries
and some more garden photos..
wine is ready, strong and tasty and the cider is on it s second fermentation
the mushrooms were going wild before the mid autumn summer spell, and we took advantage of it, both in the mountain and in the olive grove
another small construction took place in the rainy days of late October, to protect the fire wood and the outdoors seating area
that s it for the last month and a half, till next time some more photos from the autumn in paliomylos 😉
