Fall Planting: Part 1

We're playing catch-up in a lot of areas including our fall planting.  Ideally, we would have already had our fall planting done but Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael interrupted 'our normal' for this time of year.

So, we're in overdrive trying to get the fall planting and clean-up done  …

 rosemary cuttings, spinach, lettuce and kale all waiting to be planted/rooted ...

spinach and kale went in this bed ... 

rosemary cuttings went in this jar …
as soon as they start putting on roots I'll plant them and place them in the greenhouse for the winter …

lettuce went in this half-barrel …

and we pulled these dead fruit trees out of the ground with the help of a neighbor so we could replace them with new ones.

We got a lot accomplished today but we still have several things to get done  … stay tuned!

The Ways of My Household: 10/14/2018

In the past 2 months we've done extensive traveling, survived Hurricane Florence, did lots and lots of disaster relief assistance and survived Hurricane Michael  … needless to say, I’m ready for things to get back to ‘our normal!’

I had about 36 hours this week that was 'our normal' so I took advantage of it and started on my long 'to-do' list!

My to-do list from last week and how I did on it …

Hurricane Florence: Entry #24

Today, we distributed the last of our disaster relief supplies and not a minute too soon either as Hurricane Michael is threatening our area just one month after Hurricane Florence slammed us.  

But, before we talk about Hurricane Michael, let's go back to Saturday evening when preparations for today began.  We knew the team members that had been helping us load and distribute disaster relief supplies would not be available for this last distribution.  Feeling quite desperate, I cried out to God in prayer asking Him to send us help … and He did.  He sent us the Burroughs family from Florida, a family of 6 who were visiting family locally and who worshipped with us at church on Sunday.  They asked if there was anything their family could do to help with the disaster relief going on and I almost cried.  I almost cried because God had heard my cry and answered it so quickly and I almost cried because this meant that my husband and I wouldn't have to load and distribute the last load by ourselves.

(This was just a portion of what had to be loaded.)

The Ways of My Household: 10/7/2018

The disaster relief for Hurricane Florence victims that we're doing is not over but, I need to start to get things back to normal for us.  With this thought in mind I'm going to kick off this week with a 'Ways of My Household' post.  It won't contain much but it's a step back towards my normal, so, here we go …

We found a sale on cauliflower right before Hurricane Florence hit and purchased 5 heads.  They set in the refrigerator for several days and finally we just took the time to blanch and freeze them.  We added 5 quarts of cauliflower to the freezer part of my pantry.

Hurricane Florence: Entry #23

On Friday a group of us loaded this 25' truck with food boxes, care boxes, baby care boxes, mold remediation buckets, washing powders, and diapers …
