independence days - week 27


since i'm struggling to get the garden in again this year due to my rambunctious toddler, i thought taking the id challenge would be a good moral booster for me. i try to practice this idea anyway during the growing seasons so it's a great reminder of how much i really do even when it feels like i do nothing.

over the hump!

2. harvest something:
^eggs
^calendula flowers
^chard
^celery
^carrots
^sweet potatoes (i forgot i had them!)
^3 roosters
^rutabagas
^sunchokes
^zinnia seeds

3. preserve something:


4. prep something:
^started growing eyes on potatoes

5. cook something:
^rutabagas...they are quite good, better than turnips

6. manage your reserves:
^gauze bandages/pads, surgical tape purchased for first aid kit
^rubber hot water bottle (we now have 5...used to keep us warm in bed at night)

7. work on local food systems:

8. reduce waste:
^use canvas bags at grocery store
^re-use egg cartons for our nest run eggs

9. Learned a skill:

I absolutely love mashed rutabaga. We have them every year for Thanksgiving. I also put them in pasties and soups. It's honestly one of my favorite vegetables so I am very confused as to why I don't grow them.
