Independance Days 4/9/2010

1. Plant something - Onions, Garlic, Spinach and Peas are planted. Spinach is in a container, peas are half in a container and half in the garden. Onions and garlic are in the garden. (I wish I had more space as I didn't get as many onions planted as I wanted to.)

2. Harvest something - Nothing this week.

3. Preserve something - Still working on the tincture from last week, it should be ready for straining in a few more days. Nothing new preserved though.

4. Waste Not - Compost pile raked into shape, and kitchen scraps are being diverted to it. Shelving rescued from Dave's past employer is being put up in the basement. Made a Chicken broth from a chicken carcass and some veggies.

5. Want Not - Nothing this week.

6. Building Community Food Systems - researched area farms to find possible local sources of veggies and meat.

7. Eat the food - Happily eating on the Roasted Tomato sauce I canned last fall. Peaches have been a big hit this past week too. Cake was made with the large store of flour we currently have. We're thinking bread baking is in order this weekend.
