In the Garden: I did more planting this week: dill, zucchini, okra, and eggplant.
I harvested cabbage, spring green onions, radishes, swiss chard, and squash!
We started digging our potatoes and were blessed with a good yield. The rest will be dug sometime during the next couple of weeks.
I took all the discarded parts of the fish after hubby finished cleaning them and buried it all in a raised bed to turn into fertilizer!
Fish remains make an excellent fertilizer!
The fish itself was rolled in cornmeal and deep fried. It was so good!
We were gifted more strawberries this week and I made strawberry freezer jam.
Of course, we ate our fill of them too!
In the Kitchen: I made two meatloaves, one for us and one to share.
Fitness: I wrote the following quote by journey2better.tera in my fitness journal: "You absolutely have to work for the things you want!" My thoughts: you sure do, especially when it comes to one's fitness!
Sewing: I worked some more on the apron I'm making of the fabric I was gifted a couple of weeks ago. I'm almost finished and hope to have a completed apron to share with you next week.
The 25th day of the month fell this week and as is my goal, I did something towards Christmas preparation. For this month I chose to do some additional planning and prep in my Christmas journal. I got several pages ready to start making entries for things like food, gifts, activities, cards and more.
In my Bible study, I started a second Scripture writing endeavor, this time focusing on topics. You can read more about it HERE along with the topic I chose to start with.
Bargain Hunting: This week our bargain hunting took us to a local farmstand where I found these 2 eggplant plants on clearance for $.25 each. You can see in the first picture that they are root bound but otherwise the plant looks healthy. I 'unbound' the roots, snipped off the bottom leaves and planted them deep.
That's it for this week, I hope you've had a good week!
