Prepping: Update on Blackout Precautions

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s about Germany, the country where I was born and raised, where I have lived all my life and that was a decent, advanced industrialized nation about just one year ago. Now, our current green-leftist government is obviously diligently working hard on passing the nation right downwards to the third world.

Effects

This includes (among much else) meanwhile even official bodies declaring large-scale blackouts well possible this winter – due to our amateurishly conducted and eventually disastrous “energy turnaround”. Not even a year ago, people articulating the exact same warnings were disparaged as “nazis” (will always work in germany), “conspiracy theorists” or simply “weirdos”. I’m proud to state that I was one of them 🙂


Another Mushroom Harvest

This is the 6. (sixth!) harvest from the do-it-yourself mushroom cultivation bags in the homemade fruiting chamber now and I’m really overwhelmed! If this is going on that way, I’ll never buy any mushrooms from the store again 🙂

Also, I’ll be trying to cultivate some additional sorts like King Oyster (pleurotus eryngii), Shiitake (lentinula edodes) , etc. in the future.


Strawberry Raised Bed

We got a new chicken-quarantine-box (a former luxury guinea pig enclosure, with large windows, better ventilation and easy access), so we were able to re-purpose the trusty old one: Now it’s a raised bed for the SO’s perennial strawberry plants.


Viking-style Table

After the viking-style chair I made shortly, I decided to make likewise coffee table as well, this time for my own backyard. It was as uncomplicated and as satisfiying as the first build, made from the same scaffolding oakwood with a 3 cm thickness.


Denmark Short Trip

Impressions from the wifey’s August 2022 short trip to Denmark (specifically: Langeland municipality), visiting dear friends and enjoying the gorgeous nature and sights.


Good and Original Teriyaki Chicken

Anything “Teriyaki” apparently means nothing more than “glossily fried”. Thus: You don’t need any expensive store-bought sauces, special ingredients or anything! The recipe (which seems to be original, since I even asked a born and raised asian person – just to make sure), is really easy, very delicious and done in almost  no-time. Try it! As far as i know it’s the original.


Chicken Care Routine

Now that I’ve had my chickens in the backyard for almost a year and the girls seem to be happy and satisfied enough, here’s my chicken care routine that has resulted from one year of trial and error, experiencing and learning:


Easy Knife Sharpening Aid

People who are not overly familiar with sharpening knives on a whetstone might find this little tool useful:

It slides on the spine of your knife and ensures a consistent grinding angle being maintained easily.


Steak Haché

I was about 17 years old when I was part of a school student exchange with france. With our hardly manageable and ill-fitted school-french me and my fellow classmates found ourselves being caught in a school (un “collège”) downtown in the city of Marseille (deenfr) – and confronted with a very special local dialect 🙂


Chickens and their Eggs

 

Pretty, protective, full-throated and enraged Henriette, when we tried to collect her own freshly laid egg 🙂 (She got over it and she’s very well used to us rummaging around in the den).
