Earthbag Building Update #4

Back in town for the day to run some errands and replenish provisions. We had another 40 cubic yards of lava rock delivered on Monday. The delivery was easier this time than last October’s delivery, and we were able to have them place it closer to the work area this time.

The vegetables are flourishing. The green house is thriving…

Our tomatoes are starting to come into their own.

This tommy is about the size of a tennis ball.

And we’ll have plenty of Cherry Tomatoes.

We thought the Squash plant wasn’t going to produce… but she surprised us.

It was very tasty!

The outdoor garden is also producing a good crop, given the little time we’ve had during building to really tend to it as much as we would have liked to.

Our onion bulbs are about as big as a handball at the moment.

Our Beets.

One variety of lettuce… don’t remember which one.

Another variety of lettuce… we’ll mark them better next season.

Our potatoes are doing great. Here is our first Yukon Gold.

I think we also had a Russet mixed into our seed potatoes.

The dome is taking shape. We have all of the window forms installed except for the bedroom, and an additional window for the kitchen area. More photos of that to follow in the next post.
