So how are you today? We have had beautiful weather. My 15-year-old son loves to puts around. The last couple of days he been working up the garden. We have a riding lawn mower and he made a drag to level the garden with. He or his sister will drive the riding lawn mower while one of them and their younger brother sits on the drag. Every day he makes adjustments on the drag. I believe someday he will make something to sell. He has wonderful ideas.
Today, my daughter and I went shopping for seeds and groceries. We had fun picking out seeds. The heirloom seeds were buy 3 get 1 free. So one of the free packages she picked out was a yellow watermelon. She wants to try it but, she told me that if they don’t like it, it was free. Smile.
Coming away from the grocery store and gas station today, I got terrible sticker shock. It is a good thing that I didn’t need much today.
Last year we planted potatoes and we still have about an other months worth to eat. We ran out of onions in January. This year I want to plant and freeze enough veggies that we will not have to buy any in the store. My mom and grandmother did this years ago. The other thing that I want to do is try to figure out how to grow lettuce and onions so that we can dig them up in the winter as we need them.
Let me know what your goals are for this summer. Is it gardening? vacations? Have a wonderful weekend.
