Spring is finally beginning to spring around here! This week is promising temps in the 70's - awesome!!!
In honor of that I am yet again attempting to have a garden. Last year it got too late in the season to start and I used a few containers to see if my seeds would even grow... they've been exposed to a wild range of temps in our journey so far! But, amazingly, they did - though there wasn't enough dirt to give enough nutrients to get real veggies... so...
This year we are going in the ground directly. I had some help from a very nice set of new friends as you will see below!
HUGE Thank You to Barbara and Dave for their contributions and efforts!
If you are into "survival" you just can't do it alone. I didn't ask for their help or their poop - they offered. When I went to prep the area I had no idea how poorly it would drain. These are the kind of blessings you can't plan for but are proof that survival is something we have to do together.
On another note... the pinto bean drama has finally been resolved! I bought fresh beans and they cooked up nicely! I also made some tortillas by hand - but that is another story...
If you missed the whole story the beans went bad. You can tell how fresh they are by how dark they boil up. The last batch wasn't really edible and so now I have about 25 lbs of beans I can't eat. I have no idea if I plant them they will grow - but I've got plenty to find out with...
Just because you "plan and prepare" doesn't mean it will work out they way you want!
The same is true for the garden. I have no idea if the veggies will grow. This area is tough, but it has been done. The land I am on used to be a pinto bean farm. Now it is pasture for cows - the cows you see all over this blog!
I am going old school - in the ground with sun, water, dirt, and a whole lotta prayer. The poop thing was a bonus I hadn't planned on, though there is PLENTY of cow poop here!
Just an update on what is happening around here lately. On a more businesses like note, I am SO close to finishing the ebook "The Survival Solution" which I will be offering here soon for free!
Have a great day and we will say hi again soon from here on the high prairie in the heart of New Mexico!
Welcome to my Journey!
I'm inviting you to join me on my journey as I seek to find a new way of being in an old set of systems. It's hard, but worth it!
