My Frugal Ways this Past Week 5/21/17!

We are trying to get the garden ready but it is just too wet yet.  We did manage to burn it off as much as we could last week.   The rest was too green to burn.  We will bag it up after it dries up some this week.   Due to the rain we may be a week later in planting this year (we usually plant Memorial weekend).  This has happened before and we are still able to get a great harvest.

I planted cabbage and spinach plants that were gave to me when we thinned the plants at the senior citizen garden.   I can see they went through a shock but they are coming back now.  I planted these by the shed where it's easier to get to.  

It was very warm here the first of the week.   I was able to hang many loads of laundry before the rain and cooler weather returned.

I borrowed cilantro from my daughters spice cabinet.  It's not something I use frequently so it was good not to buy a whole bottle to try a recipe.

I won tickets to see the Wild Kratts with grandson and granddaughter in Detroit.  They loved it!

My goals for this week

Read and review a book.
