I decided to combine the wonderful Independence Day Challange with the once a month garden update for my monday’s main posts. Going to also add links to blog I read that are doing this challange, if anyone else who read’s me is going to join, please let me know in the comments and I will link you in as well!
Plant something: Beans, Radishes and spinach
Harvest something: Everything counts – Sprouts, Eggs, Milk, Maple Water
Preserve something: Canned Lamb, Rabbit, Duck, Dried apples, Dried Precooked Rice and Barley and made “instant” spiced pint jars for suppers when I am in a hurry.
Waste not: Composting from the house, barns. One of my big water jugs broke, so I cut the top off, and now it will fit in the bottom half and I will have another mini green starter green house, filled it with dirt and winter sowned it and set it up on the south side of the little barn, and it will do its thing!
Want Not: Great Week on this, only 5 spending days out of 20 this month so far, however speaking of coming wants -DH’s birthday is coming up and he came home with a b-day gift idea, he has decided that he wants a bow for his birthday, he is unsure yet what kind, and he didn’t even finch when I say.. Me too right? So we can do it together, just yup, we will have to get a large round bale placed over there for target practise..
