Challenge #3

1. Garden work: I have been working on weeding the garden & I sprayed the tomato plants with water, dish soap, and oil to kill off the aphids. I will have to reapply but it is working.

1A. Harvest something: 3 Radishes out of the garden

2. Preserve something. I made strawberry cordial.

3. Food storage. 3lb beef roast in the freezer

4. Other preparedness tasks: Switched over my winter to summer clothes. Much cooler now. LOL! Have been burning paperwork instead of shredding.

5. Try a new recipe: Made BBQ Pork Chops.

6. Financial preparedness: Still working on getting caught up. This really doesn't change week to week.

7. Work on local food systems. Really didn't do anything in this category this week.

8: Learn something. This week I learned about Beets and how to kill aphids.

9: Serve someone. I have prayed for the recovery of a dear friend this week. And it seems to be working. ;o)
