TOWNSITE


The Townsite is presently the most active portion of the Spiritfarming project. One entire block of our small town, including a 1500 sq. ft. shop, and a small house, both of which are being rebuilt, plus a garden area, and a sizeable treed area. 

Included. a couple blocks away, is a 1908 church, which will be repurposed into an energetic, eclectic, over the top lodging for people sharing the ProlitarianPioneer experience.

        ...the " shop " is nearly 100 years old,.and, arguably, a challenge to re-build,.then again, that is exactly what we do,.and why we say, "what does it REALLY cost?"...

       a passer-by, or righteous member of the "Status Quo ", may judge me for the external appearance of my dwelling, however, here in " KinaDuh ", folks are rewarded

                   for improving their property by having their taxes raised,.if that is your gig, please, indulge...I myself  NEVER  stand in my yard looking at my house...

                                                         ...recently ,we have begun posting " Blog Style" onsite, so from here down , the newest posts will be on top...

                                                                      AUGUST 2021

          ...for some time , I have been scheming ways to create a " mud elevator", to facilitate my Smallhouse basement renovation, and a Prolineer neighbour luckily had a

            hay bale elevator, that he found thrown in the dump, and , of course, towed home straightaway!...he has offered it as a candidate for a mud-elevator conversion...

                                        ...the unit had been unused for a decade or so apparently , so the chain cover was removed to allow soaking the chain with oil...

                                                                                         ...the cross shafts utilize no bearings , so I drilled the outer tubes to allow oiling...               

                                                                                                                      ...preliminary loosening was done with WD-40...

                          ...after proper lubrication, the holes were sealed to keep out debris...not a heavy duty repair,..but this is probably the last project for this machine...

                                                                                                                      ...the short top shaft received the sane treatment...

                                                                                                                       ...every link in the lengthy chain was rusted solid!...

                                                                                                                    ...fortunatly, I always have plenty of used oil in stock...

                                                                              ...the ancient motor, also seized, will be replaced by some other , more willing candidate...

                                                                                                         ...the "harvest panic" comes early this year, with so little rain...

                                                                                                 a few spare raspberries from the trillions in my Sister's enormous patch!...

                                                                                                                         ...time to re-learn how to make preserves...

                                                              ...the berries are going to the freezer,..jam & jelly can be made in the winter when more time is available...

                                                                      JULY 2021

                 ...the "Townsite" includes some lots that have been left unattended for basically half a century,..creating a wonderful bit of wilderness in the " backyard "...

                                                                             ... I fashioned some bird feeders and houses from discarded farm, house, and industrial pieces...

                                                                                                        ...the metal disc bases are an attempt to deter hungry cats...

                                                                                                       ...this evening pic makes the world look like it feels...on fire!...

                                                                         JUNE 2021

                                                                                                                    ...some beautiful fungi in one of the shady spots...

                                                                                                                     ...winter tried one last time to discourage spring...

                                                           ...the apple trees were optimistic, not knowing there would be precious little moisture in their future...

The thematic aspects addressed here are mostly Urban/Exodus, Rural Revival, Prolomotion, Hearticulture, FarmArt, and  AnotherStarvingHeartist.
