not buying it - week 10


-dug out and washed shredded jeans so i can patch a pair of greg's using pieces from it and tearmender glue
-i really need to get my butt in gear, i have a stack of clothes falling on me that need repaired

-harvesting salads from the lawn and garden: chickweed, kale, dandelion, violet, day lily shoots, lettuce, spinach, radishes, asparagus, dill, lamb's quarters, cilantro, mint, lemon balm
~packed food and water to take to the market


-reusing plastic bags for trash bags

-diligently shutting off power strips each night for computer/dsl and tv/dvd player (this is especially important right now while we are incubating eggs and raising chicks with grow lights which sucks the electricity)
-making sure lights are off when we are not in the room


exercise/self improvement

-feeding animals grass clippings from the lawn instead of buying hay at $5/bale
-set up a hot wire (solar powered) fence to allow the sheep to graze on our mini hay field



-still bagging and boxing up cloth
