      The Reckoning
      Episode 6
      All the families build root cellars. The families plan the harvest fair. The Clunes finish harvesting hay. Since they harvested so late the hay has very little nutritional content. The Brooks make firewood. The Glenns kill their pig (Jo-Jo pumpkin) for the fair. At the fair Adrienne wins best decorative cake. Glenns win best looking chicken. Adrienne and Gordon found a box spring that they have been sleeping on for a month and half. The Brooks would have made it through the winter. The Glen's wouldn't have made it because in winter they would be trapped in the little cabin, and they wouldn't have gotten along. The Clunes wouldn't have made it because they weren't prepared enough.moreless
