We have more bluebird eggs!!! My husband came in with this photo this afternoon after deciding to check the nest. Looks like the bluebirds like this spot for hatching out their young!
My to-do list from last time:
Continue harvesting and dehydrating spring onions. Done! Actually, this is an ongoing process and will continue until the onions are all harvested.
See what I can add to my pantry for $5. Done! I was able to score a CVS deal for much less than $5. You can read about it HERE.
Chopped and dehydrated some leftover raw carrots.
Chopped and dehydrated some leftover bell peppers.
Gratefully received some fresh from the ground potatoes, fresh from the vine cucumbers and fresh from the ground onions from some friends.
Added compost materials to the compost bin I emptied a couple of weeks ago. It’s time to start the process all over again!
Browned a large package of ground beef we purchased on sale. Froze two meal size portions from it for future cooking and used the rest to make spaghetti sauce for dinner one night.
In The Garden we have …
Baby cucumbers on the vines
The second planting of cucumbers we planted is up and about an inch high. In another week or so it’ll be time to plant a third planting. By planting them in stages, it insures that we will have cucumbers to eat most of the summer.
Bell, banana, jalapeño and cayenne pepper plants are thriving
Spring green onions to eat
Squash plants are about a foot tall
Second planting of squash is pushing through the ground
