I guess my specific question was is there an easier way? I have all the old Foxfire books, a few cookbooks, and I joined the homesteading site.
I's just plain work, isn't it? I'm beginning to believe that tho I've been here almost five years.
I plan a garden every year and that has been good because Dad is a farmer and he is a big help.

A forum is but a forum; the people make it a family.

LOL, I don't really think it is easy baking with a wood stove. I'm thinking why I have such fond memories is because my last stove was a wood/gas combination stove. If I wanted to bake bread and the oven temp was only 285*F, then I would turn on the gas to bump the temp up to 350*F.

"I's just plain work, isn't it?"
It's all relative; for example with repect to laundry-
people using a glass washboard or doing cookwash thought it was an improvement over pounding laundry on rocks.
the users of wringer type washing machines thought the washboard was drudgery.
the users of front loading automatic machines would be horrified if asked to use a wringer type machine.
