Added 1 week's food to my long term shelf stable stores.

Priced some yahoo coming out and installing gutters and siding for the water collection system instead of me busting my own balls in the summer heat. $590 and $550 respectively. Looks like Imma have to bust my balls in the summer heat.

Nearly died from a cucumber avalanche from my garden. Just kidding but I did harvest 5 cucumbers and it looks like I'll have another 5 or so ready this week.

On that note, sprayed the shit out of my garden and roses so the June bugs wouldn't eat them to nothing. Fuck those beetles.

It looks like the corn I'm going to have is going to be pretty small. But edible and usable. Same for everything planted so far. They're thriving but not as large as they could be. This is still better than I expected. On that note, the garden experiment this year looks successful provided I start amending the soil for a more permanent garden (and grass prevention). I will start doing that this fall.

Treated the canvas top of the truck. UV and water resistant now. Still have to do tires, wipers, and exhaust gooseneck replacements.

I put in a peach tree and we have native black berries that are good and established and I was really looking forward to the harvest... Japanese beetles leveled both of them in a week. Fucking bugs man. I sprayed Sevin and got a good bead on them now but I need to come up with more natural predation because they are thick.

Yeah, that's why I haven't planted any trees yet. I know those beetles are here and will cut that tree down with a quickness. Once I figure out how to keep those fuckers off my trees, Imma plant a fuckton of fruit trees. And maple trees. I want my landscape to be as nearly 100% edible as possible.

I started the Keto diet to lose weight. Bought ammo and did a generator test because we're expecting some severe weather.

Anyone notice your generator? You're in the middle of BFE, right?

I had someone come to my door last week and ask me about my house solar.

I'm way back from the road and surrounded by thick virgin forest. I did my own hearing test and couldn't hear it from the road but if you got under the canopy you definitely could. I think it'll need to be muffled. I saw an interesting setup where a guy piped it underground and then had a vent tube and it sounded the quietest. Still looking into it.

I took a dump this morning.
