I took my gardening goals off last week because I thought I wouldn’t have time for them. I ended up filling two trash cans from the garden anyway, with a few weeds and mostly with a tomato plant that succumbed to disease. I also ended up doing a little bit of fall planting of seeds. I generally don’t plant this early, but I am hoping that the slightly lower temperatures this year will be low enough for seeds to germinate.
I also took off my mending goals, and then I ended up being asked by my family to mend 7 or 8 articles of clothing (none of which were already on the mending pile). I took care of the mending that was needed right away.
I concentrated on getting Liberty’s presents done, and I almost finished. I’ll have to finish them on Monday.
This week I have planned even more sewing, but what is left is small bits and pieces, so hopefully I can complete several projects.

1. Finish dress for Winter
2. Finish dress for Wren
3. Finish dress for Liberty. I realized that I had been working on a size 6 (I started cutting this out many months earlier), and that I should be making a size 7, so I started over. I cut out the dress and the lining and I have almost finished it.

  3. My goals for this week are to clean the refridgerator and to figure out what the heck is wrong with our garden. ugh. We were out turning the soil for the fall planting and not only was the bed absolutely ALIVE with ants, like a carpet. Those teeny ones. And we still have these round white balls that I initially thought were spider sacks or snake or something and they have all these fine white roots coming out of them. They run from tiny to fairly large in size. It’s perplexing. My husband and I are trying to decide if we should plant or if we should try and bake the soil with what is left of the heat.

  4. My goals:research to see if I can plant lettuce seeds now. Hopefully I can add that to my list.transplant a bush.

It’s great that as she learns I learn with her.

  5. Ugh, I don’t know if I accomplished anything that I wanted to do, but someone gave me a sourdough starter and we have had pizza with it, and I have 9 crust’s in the freezer, and two loaves of bread currently rising. I started cleaning out our garage but the progress has stalled.This week, I want to work on cleaning the garage some more, we want to set up a table for our big girls to leave Lego projects on.I also want to finish two items in my current project pile.

  7. Wow – lots of sewing for you! I need to make some new slip covers for my couch but keep putting it off. I’ve been waiting for a break in the weather to transplant a bunch of my flowers. Always seems like there’s to much to do with way to little time 🙂 Hope you have a nice week.

  8. I cleaned out my garden area and planted the lettuce seeds! I researched and learned I can plant swiss chard too. Hopefully, I’ll find some packets this week. Thanks for all the info I am finding on here. 🙂
