The granddaughter helped and we harvested about 20 very small onions out of the grow bag. Both of the grandchildren are saving money at our house so I've been giving them little jobs according to their age. I usually pay them 50 cents to a couple of dollars depending on what they do and they are saving it on the mantel piece in a pint jar.
I chopped and froze about 2 cups worth.
Today after church she will help plant mustard greens seeds in that spot.
Besides freezing zucchini lasagna noodles I also made zucchini bread.
At the same time, much to the delight of my husband, I made up a pan of biscuits. I gathered up a loaf of bread and some biscuits and gave them to the neighbor who gave me his grass clippings.
I watered the tomato and pepper plants with water from the rain barrel. I'll water more tonight if we don't get any rain.
I harvested cucumbers as they became ready.
I took all the little flavorings my husband likes for his water out of their boxes (there were 11 boxes) and put them in a old pickle bologna jar. This freed up a lot of room in the pantry. I cleaned out my pantry in the Spring but it probably needs organizing again. Cheryl at Cheryl's Frugal Corner made some good points this past week about cleaning and organizing your pantry. It's good to know what you have. If you need to grow your pantry Patsi at a Working Pantry shows you how to build it up each week for $5 or less.
We've been going to garage sales still and this past week we ventured further out in the country. We found some great deals so we will do that again. I found a bench for the entryway for $12.00, this little play tea table for $5.00, coloring/workbooks for kids (great for travel), and clothes for both grandchildren.
Among other things husband found a wheelbarrow for $3.00. The wheel was bad but he had a extra wheel stored from an older wheelbarrow.
We also found a lot in the free boxes they had at each sale.
Goals for this week:
Keep weeding the garden (almost all caught up)
