    Another update. Here's some more traditional very tasty food, polenta with cheese and sour cream and boiled eggs:



    It's so tasty!
    Regarding the building, I have decided to hire a company for pouring the concrete layer.
    Now we're installing the heat protection.

    This is the facade I want to have it finished (at least) this year and these 3 rooms as I've said before. But I started thinking that if I want to have it look like this, I need to have earth also in the left part of the green door.

    So I need to also make water protection for this part in the circle. hobbiton_tf175_1-cb170452.jpg
    Meaning this part here.

    So I will also do that part on top of the house.
    Next is putting heat protection on the facade of the house.
    Sewer connection.
    Water protection.
    Earth.
    + some minor jobs.

    Love the update and especially the camp cooking...looks yum. I love to cookout when we're camping/hiking but I tend to burn things :(. Your polenta looks great!

    What do you mean you tend to burn things?:D
    Summer is coming soon so right about now I need to start working on my vegetable garden. Living like a hobbit has great rewards but you also have to do a lot of work. I also share the joy of growing things so I need to start working for my garden.
    At this time I took some cow caca mixed with earth and put it into cups.
    I'm now putting the seeds inside the cups.
    Once the plants will be big enough, the weather will be warm and I will plant them in the garden. I haven't built a garden near my Bag End yet so I need to build it in a few weeks.
    I will be planting several kinds of tomato , cucumbers, peppers and some pumpkins. I have the seeds from my last year's garden :cool:
