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.

  1. I’m glad you mentioned in your comment that you started a blog. I will be adding it to my reading list.
    My goal is to grow all our own vegetables and as much of our fruit as I can. Last year we came pretty close to growing the right amount of vegetables–I do need to plant more potatoes this year and figure out exactly what we have left in the freezer as far as corn, green beans, greens, etc before I start planting the garden this spring.

  2. I would love to be able to grow enough to feed my family. I haven’t been able to yet, and have always supplemented with a CSA membership. This year we didn’t have the money to get the summer CSA share, so we will have to see how it goes. I am totally impressed that you were able to store enough potatoes for your family! We love potatoes here, but I have no idea how to store them through the winter…and I tend to dig up all the new potatoes in the summer leaving not so many real potatoes to dig up at the end of the season 🙂
