Winter Sowing Update, Flower Gardening, and What I'm Reading this Week




I went through all my winter sown jugs and I can say that I've had  a 90 % failure rate.   The lettuce is wonderful though so I can be thankful for that.  In some of the jugs I can see seedlings starting to form, so I think I might devote a section of my garden for wannabe vegetables, just to see if they make it.  

Just like life, there is a lot of living and dying in the garden.  The dying came I believe because of the rain we had day after day.  There was no sun for days on end and I think the seeds just rotted. Most of the soil in the jugs was very wet.

The dying part is disappointing and sad for sure but I've decided to be excited about planting my big garden in the back yard this weekend (if it's dry enough). We just got to keep trying and never give up!




While we had some sun this afternoon I planted some flowers in the planters.  I used the potting soil from some of the winter sown jugs that didn't make it.  I was a little nervous last night when it got so cold that we turned on the furnace, but the flowers were still ok this morning.  

I've also weeded here and weeded there.  Sick of weeds!  They had better not come back!  



Before the clouds took over the beautiful sun I sit down to enjoy my book this week, HillbrookeThe Healer by Beverly Joy Roberts.  It's so, so, good. I got caught up in the turmoil and ate my apple and peanut butter before I knew what had happened.  I'm on page 74 and I've got quite away to go.  I'm going to read more before I fall asleep tonight.   Well, that is my plan once the head hits the pillow, I don't last long.  

How's your week been going so far?

My Menu Plan for this Week 5/20/19!





After watching the weather this morning we have grilling plans for the weekend!  Right now it's a good 50 degrees but by Friday they are forecasting summer weather with a high in the 80's.  Yeah!  What a good weekend that we have promised.  Today though we will have that turkey noodle soup that I never made yet.   We just need a little warm up.  

Hamburger is on sale at Meijer so we will be stocking up.  I have plans to make up some coney island hot dog sauce for the freezer.  It will be great this summer to grap some that's already made.  
  

Monday                  Turkey noodle soup

Tuesday                   BLT's

Wednesday              Lasagna

Thursday                 Leftovers

Friday                      Grilled Hamburgers

Saturday                  Grilled Hotdogs/with coney island chili sauce

Sunday                     Grilled Steaks!  

Sides for this week: Baked beans, salad, green beans, and baked potatoes for steak.


What's on your menu this week?

My Frugal Ways this Past Week 5/19/19!

This week the rain has slowed down some and we had a few nice sunny days. This picture was took when I let the cat in the porch yesterday morning just as the sun was coming up.  It was a beautiful start to the day.


Here are the ways I've saved this week:

Taking care of our house windows has been our big home improvement for the year.  We have replaced the glass on the top three huge front picture windows instead of getting replacement windows (seals were broke).  This week we have been getting estimates on completely replacing two more windows.  Both estimates came up to the same price..to the penny.  We plan on getting one more estimate but so far we are amazed at the cost of labor.  We might just have to learn how to install the windows our self.  

We also got estimates and then replaced our well pump this week before it went completely out.  Both of these are major expenses but we saved and planned for them.  



After we went to the zoo and found that the grandson really liked taking pictures, we have been thinking about getting a camera for him.  We were so happy when we found a great starter camera at a garage sale for $3.00.  It was like new.  It was the last day of their sale and they wanted rid of it.  I think many people just like using their phones.  

I also found some great like new t shirts and husband found a coat at other garage sales.  I just love this time of year.  

I went to Kroger and bought the Friday and Saturday deals.  I bought 5 pounds of butter for $1.99 and used two coupons for .40 cents off they sent me in the mail.   I also picked up the Free Friday deal (water), Kroger cheese,  and 5 jars of Prego for .99 each.  

I filled out the Kroger survey to receive more fuel bonus points.  

I made low carb english muffins and cookies for the kids this morning (cookies are in the oven).  

Goals:

Buy and plant some flowers.  Hopefully we will get to plow our garden soon.

Get back to posting my grocery deals on Saturday.
