  • Description

    Description

    We are a family living in a timbered cottage with a minimalist island system of electricity at the top of Černá hora in the foothills of the Šumava Mountains. My husband Albert is a carpenter and I take care of the children, the household and the garden. We grow vegetables that we process and store for the winter. We ferment vegetables, make pesto, dry herbs, prepare ointments and tinctures for own use and neighbourhood exchange.

    Jsme rodina žijící v roubené chaloupce s minimalistickým ostrovním systémem zdroje elektřiny na vrcholu Černé hory v podhůří Šumavy. Manžel Albert je tesař a já se věnuji dětem, domácnosti a zahradě. Pěstujeme si zeleninu kterou zpracováváme a uskladňujeme na zimní období. Kvasíme zeleninu, vyrábíme pesto, sušíme byliny, připravujeme mastě a tinktury pro vlastní potřebu a sousedskou směnu.
