I spent my birthday working in the garden, planting fruit trees.
I harvested lettuce, green onions, and parsley from the garden.
I sowed more seeds for zinnias in pots that I will transplant to the garden when we are ready.
I watched a short free photography videos from a photographer whose work I like.
I hemmed a pair of jeans, mended a pair of shorts, and turned a pair of jeans with holes in the knees into shorts.
I made a triple batch of laundry soap.
I baked bread, granola, four turkeys (bought on clearance last week for $0.69 a pound), and two pumpkins and two butternut squash from the garden.
We continued to pick up the school meals.
We opened the windows in the house and enjoyed the beautiful weather. It was pretty hot for several days. We turned on the ceiling fans when needed in the afternoon. It will be 97 degrees by the end of this week, so I’m sure I’ll have to use it then, but I try to go as long as possible before turning it on.
I read another article about worldwide rising food prices. This was about staples. While I can’t grow wheat, oil, corn, or sugar, I can grow more fruits and vegetables, and I hope to have success with that. I am low on oil so I plan to stock up on that in May.
