Cold, gray, rainy miserable day. Spent most of it dehydrating and vac-sealing food.

Proving Asparagus pays . While running a bit behind this year weather has been off. Minutes of cutting produced at least 3 good meals. Enjoying some of it in butter and onion. This bed has been in over 35 years a mix of verities it has reseeded it's self and never stopped producing with very little care.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

Just watched a couple/few videos by the gray bearded green beret.
I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.

Old Country BBQ Pitts. There isn't a nut or bolt on the thing. Should last 10 years at least.

It's cold and rainy here, but worst of all, my wife wants us to "do something together" once again. This time it's to go out and get a message. My right shoulder is acting up again, so she jumped at the chance.
I get my chores done early, even the dog's breakfast is done and in the refrigerator. I do not need to be spurred into action. But about mid-afternoon, I like to settle back with a good book or polish a knife. Just mindless, quieting pursuits. For my wife this a danger signal! Oh, oh, functionless male sitting around idle!
Idle? I get up three to four hours before she does...

Today was a day to try new things 🤗
Last year I got some bulbs of Dioscorea bulbifera (we call it "cará", or air potatoes in here), and I planted it. Today we harvested some and cooked it. It tastes very nice and the texture is similar to sweet potatoes, but without the sweet flavor. Very filling.
Those are fairly easy to grow, you just have to plant one of the bulbs and after a while it sprouts and starts climbing. No work required after that. It is a vine that climbs over any fence or tree you might have nearby. No diseases or pests so far. It takes very little space to grow and produces a lot of bulbs. I had only two plants this year and they produced more than all of the regular potatoes I planted this year.
Very interesting for cultivating. Also, could be a couvert food, since most people do not know what it is, it could be left to grown among the trees, in a semi wild state and harvested when needed.
I attached some pictures of the bulbs and the plant. I am not sure if it grows in north America.

Finally got my 40' tower installed with a CB antenna on the tip. Now I have to run the cable inside of the house to the prepper room. Wife wont let me cut any holes until she is present. For some reason she does not trust me. I have to get some PVC and a 50' cable so I can attach a GMRS/FRS antenna to the tower.
Bought, some Army dufflebags a plunger thing for laundry from the auction.
eBay I bought these MOLLE pouches. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tactical-Mo...72.m2749.l2649 I used a couple for BOB emergency fishing kit pouches. I like them. I ordered a couple more, maybe for admin pouches.
I ordered a couple of these alcohol stoves. https://www.ebay.com/itm/223218148814 I am replacing my trioxane compressed fuel and Esbit stoves in the BOB's. Alcohol is a lot cheaper than compressed fuel. The stoves work ok for copies. The flames are yellow instead of blue.

Instead of cutting a hole in your wall, try one of these. This is what I use for both UHF/VHF and HF.

I've never heard of that plant. Thanks for sharing!

Very cool. Never heard of these. Do they need a tropical climate to grow?
