Challenge #4

This week has been really screwed up. DH is on vacation so we are doing a ton of things we would normally not be doing. That is the main reason I haven't been here. So I am going to take a break for the rest of the week. I will have some pics of this weeks adventures for next week.

1. Garden work: I have been watering and weeding

1A. Harvest something: Radishes are all gone from the first planting and I have been bringing in lots of lettuces, spinach and swiss chard

2. Preserve something. I made 14 pints strawberry syrup, 7 pints strawberry sauce, 7 pints of peach ambrosia jam and still waiting to do the strawberry jelly.

3. Food storage. Nothing again this week other then the above.

4. Other preparedness tasks: Working on the compost again.

5. Try a new recipe: Adding spinach to everything I can

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. Found some new recipes from the library books .

9: Serve someone. Worked down at the Legion serving breakfast for all the Dad's that came in.
