I took over 100 cuttings from the hedges in my front yard, removed the lower leaves, dipped the ends in rooting powder, and stuck them in the garden along the drip lines where I hope they will grow. To buy bushes would cost around $4 to $5 each. I need about 1300 bushes, and I hope to make them all myself over the next month.
I sowed seeds in the garden for snow peas. lettuce, and Armenian cucumbers.
I mended a hoodie and a pair of pants for my daughters.
I shortened the sleeves of a shirt for my mother.
I ground whole wheat in our grinder to make flour and made whole wheat waffles. I substituted part of the oil with home-canned applesauce. I didn’t do a complete substitution because I wanted to make sure the waffles didn’t stick to the waffle iron.
