I'm a day late and a dollar short this week. After lots of rain, we had abundant sunshine and warmth. We're now back to lots of rain. My backyard never quite recovered from the flooding from last week. The new rain has reestablished the lake in my back yard. I wish I had a way to hold all of this water for later in the year for the garden. That would be a huge holding tank, I'm afraid.
Plant something: peas, 2 types of lettuce, swiss chard, carrots and beets
Harvest something: lots of chicken eggs
Preserve something: I canned up 3 quarts of chicken broth made from scraps.
Waste not: All of the boxes that come from Hubby's business in the past 2 months got used. They are now forming walkways between my garden beds. I also used all of the feed bags from the chicken feed.
Want not: Hubby talked me out of buying a rototiller. He reminded me that it only would be used once or twice a year and I could rent one. He was right.
Eat the food: Made pizza sauce from the last of the canned tomatoes. Used some cabbage and the last of the green beans in egg rolls.
Build community food systems. not so much
