I'm even boring myself lately.
Melissa came out yesterday. Surprised me. I actually like it when people come out in the middle of the day. Even though I have neighbors, most of them work away from home, and it can get a tad lonely out here. We chatted a bit about helping each other out. She needs a place to put a beef cow, I need. . . what do I need? Shall I get all existential on you all? Do you really want to get that personnel with me?
They are calling for rain later today. I am going to see if my good neighbor will come over with his tractor and dig up my garden. The tiller and tractor are still down. I have to get something, almost everything up, in. I need to plant some more stuff in doors. Why? Because I want to eliminate the chance of weeding them out, them getting flooded out, or never even sprouting. It is just something to make my gardening life easier.
Speaking of such, I have noticed that many of us are struggling. Our food preserves are dwindling, and money is scarce. I am right there with you all. I am lucky enough to still have a freezer full of pork. Last night we made home made pizza, the only ingredients that were store bought where the flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda for the dough. We made farmers cheese for the topping, ground up pork and seasoned it with herbs, and opened a canned jar of pizza sauce. It is possible to do a lot with a little. It might be a subject I should write more about.
So if you want, which I know that one of you was very vocal in wanting this, in the up coming weeks, as produce starts coming in, I will write on the various ways of using and preserving. And not just the typical items or food stuff. But the more odd and desperate. Since we all live in different climates, feel free to let me know what you have started bringing in that you need help with. It's why I am here.
