I came to the conclusion on Friday that when your weeds are as tall as your vegetable plants, it's time to drop everything else and get to it pronto.  So, on Sunday morning that's exactly what I did.  For 3 hours.  It's looking 10 times better.....for the moment.

We are still harvesting asparagus and the veggies coming up next are sugar snap peas, summer squash, cukes and tomatoes.  My pepper plants are, in a word, pathetic.  I'm not sure what's up with them but I'm hoping they sprout up soon.  They have peppers and flowers but the plants only stand about 10 inches tall.

We spent Saturday morning at the farmer's market.  The remainder of the weekend was spent catching up the laundry, getting the lawn mowed, cleaning, of course weeding.  This month may be a bit quieter on the blog than previous months.  It's a month of changes, juggling and finding balance.  Ahhh....balance.  :-)

I made BLT's on Saturday for lunch.  They were good but I just can't wait until they are made with our own vine-ripened tomatoes.  Hopefully only a few more weeks.

Hoping you had a wonderful weekend!

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018

1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

February 13, 2018

If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year.
