    This was not planned. Yesterday I was at the recycle center, and getting rid of some things. I put the papers in the correct bin, and noticed on top some magazines. Good thing I had a cardboard box in my hand that I just dumped from. So I loaded up the magazines, and figured on some possible brownie points. All recent hunting and gun/ammo ones. After the hubby gets done looking at them, the ones he doesn't want to keep, will go to my son. So I am thinking *entertainment reading value* and a information source. That plays a part in prepping
    When I went back to the truck to get more stuff to put in the bins, I saw the paper bin get picked up and then dumped on the floor for them to start work on. I can't feel guilty for taking a few magazines. Next time I go, I will find a few extra around here to take back of other titles. It's called recyling for a reason.

    Found Masa Harina, and other goodies at an out of town natural food store - stocked up on medicines, no-flouride toothpaste. Even splurged on kitchen items for me - a spring-weight scale which I've been dreaming about for a while.

    Adding some bagged soil to my list....
    That's a confirmation! Thanks!

I could just lay out a bunch of soil bags, cut slits in them, plant my seeds, and call it a day.

    Since I'm new to gardening, is there anything else I should know? I love this idea because it means I might not need to buy any pots at all. My gardening budget is €50 for the entire year so this would really help me.
    Here's an idea that might help.

    If you have people above you, try tying string or wire from your balcony rail to theirs and you can grow beans and cucumbers up the strings. Think vertical gardening. Small melons, cucumbers, small squash the vining types, tomatoes and a type of pea called Alderman's pea (or tall telephone peas) that grows 6' tall.

    I've been so busy, I can't keep up with all the posts.

    I got bamboo poles and plants for my tomatoes. Planted 15 pots of bamboo, one is really really large tree container. Now I can grow my own tomato stakes.

    Helped get the doors on the carport up.

    Planted some more garden.
    Put in some cayenne peppers, some spaghetti squash, some aztec black sweet corn, watermelon, canteloupe, yellow squash, zucchini.

    Got another truck load of compost and a truckload of cow manure.

    I'm growing so much it's taking most of the day to water everything!!!

    Planted some ginger for food and medicine.

    Went curb diving and found adhesive roll roofing, tar paper and another kind of roll roofing. Just enough to do our new chicken coop!

    Oh, and found a cool site! It has some old Italian methods of preserving.

    cevenolkitchen.blogspot.com

    His blog is up and running on and off and on basis. Sometimes he can't even get in, but if you get the opportunity, find the link for preserves and you will be glad you did!

    Since all my herbs were over 5 years old, I cut them hard and dried them, and then I dumped them.
    Yesterday I went and bought new. Now I have to pot them up.

    Today I'll be buying a new pear tree and another cherry tree.

    Hubby ordered some parts for the new deuce and a half.

    I did a little CVS shopping last night and picked up a bottle of PediaCare and 4 packages of Pampers/Easy Ups... We're at the tail end of potty training and only need diapers away from home or at night for my little one but I feel a little better having extras in the house again just in case.

    Took a goat milk soap class! Very fun (three 5-day old visitors, too).
    Picked up 8lbs chicken for under $2 a pound - sucky bagged and in the freezer. Am trying GreekIslandGirl's spicy chickpeas for dinner.

    Bought a 3 pack of super glue for $1 at Harbor Freight. . . lots of uses, not the least of which - is a great way to suture up a minor cut.

    I planted a sand cherry hedge.I found three large red mushrooms- feasted on a sliced mushroom sandwich with lettuce, onion and a tomato. Absolutely delicious!
