  • Re: Thankful Thursday April 17th $$$$$$$$$$$ Stretching

    Today was an at home day. Opened the windows to let in the fresh, cool morning air, as we were in the 70's today, & the west afternoon sun thru the bay window can really heat up the house. Folded the dry clothes from the laundry rack & put them away, then washed towels & hung them to dry. Filled the dehydrator trays with old ...

    Yesterday on my run to the city, I stopped at Deseret Industries to look for more glass cloches for the garden, & for jars.  No cloches, but I found 9 half pints, 1 squatty pint & 3 embossed quart jars in great shape, most with good rings on them, for $4.10.  Stopped at Savers, & found a huge stack of American Girls books ...

  • Re: who pays the bills ???

    DH did when we lived in Idaho.  When we moved to Utah, he had too much going on with the new job,so I took over.  We have learned I am more tight-fisted than he, so there is usually a little $ left over in the checkbook when I am done. Since it stresses him & does not stress me, I do it.

    When I took the cloches off the lettuce this morning, I noticed 2 red sprouts of Marvel of 4 Seasons lettuce, that self-seeded from lat year, in the bed, which tells me the lettuce didn't need the cloches last night, or the little sprouts would have been frozen!  Always happy for free food that re-seeded itself.  Watered the ...

Harvested lettuce, spinach, chives, parsley & dandelions greens. Continued to remove the glass cloches each morning & replace them at night voer the ...

    We have chives, lettuce, spinach, green onions, parsley & peas up & growing. Task for the week is weeding the long strawberry bed.  I am filling a tree pot with grass & weeds every day, & am about 1/4 of the way done.
