Need moarrrrr..I've lived for 37 years and I've never tried apple butter. I've tried cashew butter, but I found it was a bit saltier than I'd expected. Might have to try some apple butter at some point.
Quote from: NT2C on November 22, 2022, 08:45:40 AMBought a new garage door opener. Yeah, I can hear you thinking, "How is that prep related?" The answer is that I bought one with a battery backup in case the power goes out. Our current Chamberlain belt drive model works fine and I have no complaints about it but it worried me that if there's a power failure while we can use the emergency release to open the door (and it's a big, heavy 14' insulated door), we can't secure it closed again from the outside. There is a door near it we could come inside through and manually lock the door but there's stuff stored in front of it, so the only other option is the front door of the house to come in and lock the garage, then repeat the process to come home.This new door, made by Genie, was on sale at Home Depot for $98 today and includes a battery backup for the door that will open and close it up to 50 times in case of a power failure. Evidently, this is required in parts of California now and Genie decided to just include it on some of the regular models. Now, once I get it installed I won't have to deal with getting out of the garage and back in if the power is out. I could probably also devise a way to charge that battery with a spare 100 watt solar panel I have in the garage.

Quote from: Halfapint on January 11, 2023, 07:58:12 AMPurchased 2 275gal IBC totes, black covers for them, and plywood to build rain collection tops for them. Need to buy the plumbing for the rain catchment. Here in WA we get enough rain in the winter to fill the tote just by putting a catch on top of the tote. I bohhht 2 15' hoop house greenhouses. I plan to get them set up in the area I just cleared for food production. I straightened out the bent bracket for the wind turbine. I hope to have it up and running by spring as a test for a larger system.
