This morning both Chris and I spent the morning at the BOE for training. This election both of us will be working seperate polls and this year I was sworn in as a judge. I am so honored to do this. I think everyone should do what they can in their communities to serve. My Grams worked the polls many many years and I am glad to be able to carry on the tradition.
Then we decided a little trip into VA was a good idea ( only a few miles) so we shopped a bit in South Boston at their Goodwill store. They have such a nice store and we picked up a few things for only a couple of dollars. Then we splurged a bit and had lunch.
Even though we were in a fried greasy fast food coma on the ride home we had worked to do so we trellised a few peas, fed the chickens, pulled a few weeds , plucked some lettuce for dinner and I set to work on my big project dujour.... getting the 50lbs of wheat flour into mylar.
We use 1 gallon mylar bags and a 300cc oxygen absorber.. probaly over kill but air is wheat flours worst enemy ( next to meal bugs) and during the summer we just don't use the flour like in the winter so we need to keep it fresh.
Here is an excellent video about storing in mylar...
I use a regular iron to seal ours. We haven't had a bit of problems with this method
Joseph stored up huge quantities of grain, like the sand of the sea; it was so much that he stopped keeping records because it was beyond measure.
Have a fine day...all day long!
