I harvested tomatoes, garlic chives, basil, and peppermint from my garden (the raita in the recipe below includes mint from my garden. The recipes are from the blog Tea for Tumeric).
I removed tomato plants that had died in my garden and sowed seeds for cucumbers and Red Noodle beans.
I purchased several pots on clearance at Sam’s Club for $16.18 each. I had previously purchased 4 of these earlier this year.
I found chicken quarters on manager’s special for $0.79 a pound, so I bought several packages. I don’t usually see manager’s special prices this low, so I was delighted. I also bought 20 pounds of pasta ( the limit was 20) on sale for $0.50 a pound.
I took my daughter to the Dillard’s clearance center. She found a homecoming dress for $17. I also bought myself a red velvet dress that I can wear this winter for $17.
Hurricane Hilary brought rain and much cooler temperatures here. I took advantage of this and pulled weeds, sowed seeds for parsley and Armenian cucumbers, and planted two replacement trees for ones that had died. I purchased one of those trees on sale for $20 off.
I purchased two bushes to replace those that died this summer for 50% off, saving another $20. This summer has been very hard on plants here; everyone in my local gardening groups has had plants die like never before. I still have more plants to replace, but this was a good start.
I turned off my drip irrigation for several days and put out buckets to collect rain.
