    I turned a 40' container into a kitchen/food processing center at the farm. Keeps the mess out of the house. A lot easier to bleach, hose down and keep clean. Do all of our dehydrating, canning and cleaning inside.

    I am still looking for a commercial type gas range to add and at some point I will probably tile the floor for ease of cleaning IMG_0182.jpg IMG_0183.jpg IMG_0184.jpg IMG_0182.jpg IMG_0183.jpg IMG_0184.jpg . At this time I have a large barrel fan that I roll in there to keep the air circulated and their are 3 turbines in the roof. Once I move over there full time I will probably cut a hole in the end and mount a chicken house style fan or even a large swamp cooler.

    Carrots and radishes are sprouting.
