Live Below the line-June 1st to 5th Challange..

I don’t know if anyone is interested in donating or not but I will be taking the live below the line 5 day challange on the first week of june.. even if you don’t want to help in that way, I do hope you will read along on it, I will be blogging both on the site and on my own blog about the daily challanges.

I am giving myself the month of may off to get ready for the challange, I only heard about it today and I have a very hard physical month in regards to planting/gardening and farm work for the month of may. We garden over a acre and half in between the main garden and the food forest gardens and I can’t imagine trying to put in those kind of day on such a limited fair..

I will still be working hard in the first week of june. I am adding to the challange in my own way..

Almost all of the food that will be eaten will in fact come from the farm itself, this will make my own personal challange quite a bit different from what I have been reading in regards to others, and I will have to work the numbers carefully to figure out the costs per day.

Because I am planning on as much 0 mile diet as possable, I will be limited in what will be done in regards to a typical N.A. Diet but I will take the time to do my best to show how the choice’s I am going to be making with provided a well rounded healthy diet over those days.

My nettles are up and will be going well in four weeks time

    Good for you! I have always wondered how much of a difference could be made, in the lives of people in cities – if they could only grow their own food – and save their cash for protein…
    This is a story, from Lynda’s blog, on this exact subject, about Ron Finley: A guerilla gardener in South Central LA, who says, “If kids grow kale, they eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes!”

    Good for you
    I try to do that everyday but only because I have to 😦

    • I’m sorry that is the case old school, i can only imagine how hard that is, I had a number of lean years in my collage and twenties but its been a good long while since I had to worry about something like where my next meal is coming from.. hope that soon that will be true for you as well

        Thank you…its just a matter of me being well enough to get back to work. A 50% pay cut when you live by yourself is a hard thing to deal with.
