Picking Prunes and Plums for Drying and the Power Goes Off
Friday August 14, 2020 Guerneville CA.
I thought I better go check the water tanks to see how our water level was doing so I hopped on the dirt bike and rode on up where they are.
The pink ribbon on the side of the tank says they are just below half full which means we need to conserve water a bit.
As long as I was on the dirt bike I went for a ride in the hills and stopped here to check on a spring. Then I headed for home.
I wanted to pick some of these plums to put on the dryer and I had some prunes to pick too.
I picked about five of these full of plums and still have more to pick, maybe tomorrow.
And I only got two of these full of prunes to dry.
I put them all in the old truck bed to start the drying process.
Just about dark the power went off and my brother who lives next door wanted to watch a ball game so we worked on getting the generator going that we share. The power company said it’s a rolling black out and we’d be out for about an hour.
We got it going and it stopped shortly after that. Checked and it needed gas so we gassed it up with what little gas we had on hand.
It was warm out today so I did a lot of chair hopping and just puttering around the yard staying in the shade as much as possible.
