The top floor of the barn is up. These walls and roof trusses were built off site, and delivered here on a boom truck. It was very interesting to watch as the boom lifted each wall and sat it down in place. The crew would then nail it down and plumb it before the next wall was moved into position.
Meanwhile, I am preserving garden goodies. Here is a tray of delicious bread and butter pickles sitting in the brine.
We broke down and bought a small chest freezer off craigslist. I put the sweet corn from the garden and some zucchini and some basil pesto from the garden in there already.
The pantry stores down cellar are starting to fill up. Its a good feeling. Many of these jars contain dehydrated or fermented food.
