Saturday the Green-Trust crew spent some time with our neighbor on his diesel powered bandsaw sawmill. We cut a bunch of logs and some boards, and made plans for mounting a coolant heated veggie tank on top of the rig. Adirondack siding is in the future for Green-Trust.
Sunday we went down to the NYC area, and converted a E-350 Ford Van with a veggie oil kit. The owner also wants a 25/2 Diesel Lister 15kw generator with 3 phase power for his shop, so we will be there again in the near future.
Yesterday was strawberry weeding day, but also had time to change the tires on the veggie powered suburban, and build some scissor trusses. Gathered some organic veggies out of cold storage and made stew:
2 large potatoes, 1 large beet, 2 large carrots, 2 onions, 3 celery stalks, all washed, not peeled (no chemical fertilizers or pesticides were used on these veggies).
Cooked the beets in 1 can of water, 1 can of chicken broth, and one can of cream of chicken soup. Then added the potatoes and kept cooking, finally added the rest of the veggies plus 2 pieces of garlic, and after mixture was boiling well, added 1 box of macaroni noodles, and 1 lb of cooked hamburger. Add salt and pepper to taste.
