8/14/2017 – 2nd week of Late Summer

Continuing to harvest Sand Plums. Learned that they will continue to ripen if left on the counter. Probably only one small harvest left. 

Started gathering a few Black Walnuts. It’s much too early, but I couldn’t resist. Besides, I can use the husks to darken the blade on my axe.

Learned a new way to make knife sheaths. I have used card stock and duct tape before to make sheaths, but I found a way to make them just using card stock based on the Northern European Birch bark sheaths. The next time I do it I will take enough photos to do a write up. But I will attach a photo to show how they turned out.

Working on building a backpack gassifier stove similar to the Midge and Mountain Ranger stove designs. Hopefully the write up for that will be next week.
