Ooops. Time got away from me.

I've done a terrible job of keeping up with the journal since last fall.  With a newborn in the house, journaling time got away from me, and from January through April, I didn't even get statistics recorded, for the first time since the systems were installed. I'm trying to get back on track with them again now, though!

Brief summary of the past several months: Fall came, and then winter, and then spring.  The propane lasted a full year this time, now that we have the extra solar panels.  The original solar panels were temporarily shorted out in late April/early May due to poor installation wiring (yet one more thing to chalk up to the incompetent original solar guy) but were back in service within a couple of weeks.

It's a remarkably cool and wet summer so far.  The cistern is completely full and the daily temperatures have often not exceeded 80.  The grass is getting a bit out of hand due to always being too wet to mow, but the flip side of that is that the blackberries are plumper and more plentiful than I can remember them being any summer since we moved here.  I look forward to freezing enough for a full year of pies.

Stay tuned for (I hope!) a proper July statistics post at the beginning of the next month!
