I harvested eggplant, parsley, lemons, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, and Swiss chard from the garden.
One of my garden goals has been to always have something ripe in the garden to eat. I decided on the first day of the year to see if I can challenge myself to harvest something from the garden every day of the year this year. I am posting a picture of at least one edible thing that I harvest from the garden each day on my Instagram account.
I used water leftover in drinking glasses at the end of the day to water potted plants in the house.
I collected shower warm-up water in a bucket each morning and used that water to water potted plants in my garden.
We had yet to have a frost, but should get one this morning. I pulled 5 sweet potato vines (these are decorative only; they don’t make food) from the pots in the garden, cut them and removed lower leaves, and stuck them in water. Our last frost is usually in 5 weeks, so I hope to overwinter these for our shorter than usual winter this year and replant them once it starts to warm back up. I have never done this before, but I would love to not have to buy these this year.
My husband cut his hair and mine.
I sent my husband back to work with cherry tomatoes from our garden.
I cut roses to enjoy in the house.
I mended a hole in a pair of pants.
The weather turned colder. We rolled up some towels and put them in the windowsills of a couple of rooms that were colder than other rooms in the house.
