We installed the central bench ourselves as a temporary measure so that we had an actual work space. You can see the 2 buckets on the bench – one each for the chickens and pigs. The lack of storage means that my Tupperware containers sit on the mantel piece of the old fire place.
The cupboards are narrow and you need an engineering degree to put all the plates in so they stack well.
The ever breeding Tupperware I keep in the wire baskets (which used to be in our wardrobe) and then the cling wrap and foil etc in the top. The big cupboard has most of the food in it, but I also have a couple of shelves cleared out of a cupboard in the spare room for all the jams, tomato sauce etc that we made earlier this year.
Should we decide to stay, I have big plans for the huge country kitchen and walk in pantry, but until then I will continue to manage with my mish mash of a kitchen.
Hope that answers some of the questions about the kitchen. If you have any other questions about the country life, let me know!
