The Grain Mill Arriveth
You may recall, that I spend GW's money on self sufficiency items. One of the major purchases was a Country Living Grain Mill. Mr. Greenjeans was skeptical but when he saw how well made it was (USA numbered and all) he had to love it too. To tell you just what a goon I am, I am facinated with the fly wheel: with how substantial it is, with how "real" it is, how perfect it is in all its simplicity.
I think the wording on this picture is interesting as is the fact that it took so long to have this delivered due to backorders at the manufacture.
It arrived last evening and I havn't gotten it set up yet, but I do love how they send a baggie of flour to show its grind. I plan on eventually setting it up to be bicycle powered. This site has a variety of options (Thank you Caroline for the link, I'm still excited) http://www.countrylivinggrainmills.com/country7.html
I will no doubt keep you all updated as I grind my way to bread!
Mr. Greenjeans is home for his days off - yea! His goal is to completely finish the chicken coop.
