Wow, these past two weeks has been crazy. Thanks to all of my readers for all of your birthday wishes for me and get well soons for my gradmother. Yesterday she was transferred to a physical therapy rehab clinic where she will learn to use her new hip. She definately has had some rough moments with the post-surgery recovery. I am also proud that the place she is in now is only 10 minutes away from where I live. The hospital was a 40 minute drive that she was in to have the surgery. In the next couple of weeks I have to play catch up in my everyday life. I have deemed this day laundry and house cleaning day. I also have realized that I am out of tons of supplies that I need and realize this means that I have to make a dreaded run to the store. I also plan to go visit my grandmother this afternoon to give her encouragement. I plan on posting some in the next few days so stay tuned. Well I heard my dryer buzz, so I am off to fold that load.
I almost forgot it was my birthday since I have been at the hospital most of the time this past week. My grandmother had surgery Thursday and has been having a hard time since then. I am about to leave in about an hour to go back to the hospital. So for my birthday, it is just another day. I am sorry that I am so scarce but until she goes to physical therapy rehab, my time here will be limited.
Just wanted to drop a note to all of you to let you know that I will probably be a little scarce on my blog due to my grandmother is back in the hospital. I am running on little sleep and feel like I am stretched a thousand ways. It would have been nice to have a sister right about now. My brother tries to help but, well, he's a man. He can't really help much because he doesn't understand what is needed and sometimes what is needed he couldn't do anyways. I am waiting for my daughter to get dressed for school and once she is on the bus I am going back to the hospital. It looks like they are going to be doing surgery today or tomorrow. I will probably be back on tonight or in the morning.
Wow, we have had a busy week around here. I have had to have some home repairs and have been dealing with the mess that was left behind. I feel like I am so behind in everything. Luckily my job didn’t have too much to do this week for me. Today the weather is so nice that it has me thinking of my garden for this year. I have had one for the last 5 years and find that it saves me a bundle each year in groceries. I plan to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, squash, bell peppers, banana peppers, cabbage, and watermelon.
The tomatoes will be used by making salsa, homemade marinara, salads, and canned to use in soups and stews for the fall. My daughter and I also love to just eat a tomato with salt and pepper for a snack sometimes. I always have good luck with them. Most years I yield enough to give to some family members that don’t have gardens.
The cucumbers I will be using them for salads and canning pickles. We usually end up harvesting enough to make us sick of picking them but in the winter when we have the jars of pickles in the pantry we are proud that we grew them.
Radishes are something that we also have good luck with. These I think are some of the easiest to plant. They don’t need a lot of love and care and my daughter loves to cut them up and eat them on her salads.
I started planting squash about 3 years ago and have always gotten some of the biggest squash that I have ever seen. We love to use them in veggie dishes wherever they will fit in. I usually end up having plenty to freeze and use during the winter.
The bell peppers are also something that I freeze when I have enough to. Bell pepper prices, when in any color other than green, are so expensive fresh in the stores. We are a house that likes fajitas and stir fry’s, and we love to use fresh veggies when possible.
Cabbage goes quick around my house. We love to cook cabbage soup. I usually get enough to freeze a few heads for the winter. Watermelons are a favorite fruit in my house but I have not been having luck in the past few years growing them but I still attempt to successfully grow them.
As you can see I love to garden. It started when I became a work-at-home mom and decided that I would make an effort that year to have one and immediately got hooked on the idea of growing my own veggies. I suggest to everyone, even if you have a small area, to at least grow tomatoes. That will alone help your grocery budget.
