1. Plant something- Yes. Tomatoes, peppers and eggplants are up under the lights and I planted tomatillos on Saturday. I need to get my second battery of lights hung and get some lettuce started. I know Roger put out some peas last weekend when I was working. I'm not sure when I will be able to get out but was hoping to get them in the ground at least by April 4th.
2. Harvest something- Other than a few lettuce leaves from the basement crop- nope.
3. Preserve something- No
4. Store something- 10 pounds of flour (unbleached) and vanilla
5. Manage reserves- ate almost entirely from reserves last week since I didn't have much time to go to the store- it will be that way this week as well, especially since we'll be gone for the weekend.
6. Cook something new- Um, I don't think so...I have been perfecting my granola bar recipe and have finally settled on a waffle recipe that everyone likes.
7. Prep something- Well, we've been working on the ultimate prep, negotiating on the acreage. We met with our realtor again this evening and signed a new offer contract since the old one had expired. We are now less than $25000 difference but we're not going to be willing to go much higher considering how much work needs done on the house.
8. Reduce waste- Not much different than usual- we do need to figure out what to do with our defunct microwave.
9. Learn a new skill- other than negotiating skills on the house- Nope.
10. Work on community food security- I've been trying to talk one of my younger co-workers to plant a little bit of garden at her house. She is married to a farmer so you'd think she would be interested. We'll see.
11. Regenerate what is lost- Not so much this week. I've been pretty self-centered with all the house stuff going on. I am looking forward to seeing lots of family this coming weekend at my nephew's wedding.
12. Behavior change- Whew! Not much procrastinating going on around here. Things are flying fast and furious. I've got the master list of repairs for this house to prep it for sale. I'm not going to be a seller like we're negotiating with and leave things half done.
All in all, not a bad two weeks. I hope to get back on track with things soon. I'm just worried that house stuff will interfere with my garden plans and we're depending on having garden produce to eat and preserve to help us make ends meet with a mortgage payment.
