It's that time again. Time for another Independence Days update. I've been busy all day, working in the kitchen while listening to several podcasts for CEU credit for my license. At least they were interesting topics. But on to the update:
Plant something- Yup! This afternoon I planted in tiny pots! Three types of cabbages (4 if you count the Nero di Toscana which is more like kale than cabbage) Red Acre, Copenhagen Market and Michihli (a Chinese cabbage), kale, chard and a few romaine seeds. More romaine and Michihli cabbage will come later.
Harvest something- only eggs. But 31 again this week.
Preserve something- nope
Waste not- just the usual. Composted, recycled and scraps to the chickens.
Want not- um, can't really think of anything I stocked up on or prepped this week- unless you can count my continuing workouts to get fit.
Eat the food- Mmm, pasta with pesto this evening. More sourdough bread was baked today as well as another batch of pretzels. We've been rationing our canned tomatoes and I have managed to not use any this week.
Build community food systems- sold eggs at work again. Even now, in the bleak of winter the ladies are still producing enough that I can sell a dozen here and there.
Skill up- hmm, nothing really. I've been working on my continuing education credits for work since my license is due to be renewed this year. I've been working more with the sourdough to see what I can do with it. Other than that, not much this week.
I don't feel like I've been too productive. Working Saturday and then again Monday with pancake breakfast in between seems to have taken a lot out of me. I've still got 2 CEUs to complete this weekend but then I'm done for the year. Since they are podcasts that I purchased rights to, I have to complete them before the end of the month or I lose access. But, I did get things planted. It was so nice to be able to listen to my lectures and still work on other things like baking bread and planting seeds. Hooray for technology.
