I tried. I really did try and make myself stay outside and do something productive. I especially wanted to make the barn cats each some type of wooden box to sleep in and begin cleaning my shop and putting things away. It was just too damned cold with that wind. Even inside the shop I was uncomfortable.
The cats will have to make do with the hay loft and their hidden hay filled den for another night.
When I have ice forming on my whiskers I usually call it a day if I don't absolutely have to be outside.
It's cold enough that I was able to remove the tub of honey super frames I had stored in
I make it a point to freeze all harvested frames to kill any parasites that might be lurking in them.
The freezer clean out wasn't enough to suppress my lazy guilt and then I remembered I still have a five gallon bucket of beans to remove from the pods and some seed corn to remove from the cobs.
So that has become my frigid weather project for today and tomorrow. Getting all my seeds and beans finished up. It also helps with the shop cleanup and straightening since I had the buckets sitting in there and being in the way. It's also a good excuse to make some ham and beans tomorrow as well.
As an added bonus Mrs. PP is bringing a pizza home tonight so I only needed to get the dishes done in the mundane chore department.
All is well in the world once again and I have a good excuse to stay inside where it's warm.
So any recommendations of where to buy some mylar bags for 5 gallon buckets? I used my last one about a month ago and I don't remember where I got the last batch from. My last batch also were a bit big so any suggestions on a supplier would be appreciated.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
