Well hello there. I was wondering if this thing was still on. I have not been a very good blogger or vlogger but I’m getting back into the swing of things. As most people will tell you…2020 was a strange year and it was full of a lot of lessons and growth. I’m not finished and I don’t have all the answsers but I’m here to share and grow with all of you now.
Over the last year Greg and I have picked up the hobby of doing jigsaw puzzles. It’s something fun that we do together. The first puzzle I worked on took me months and now it takes us a week or so to finish. What new hobbies have you picked up since the lockdowns started?
So, let’s talk about taking control of our lives and being responsible for ourselves, and helping neighbors. Over the last 10 years, I’ve realized how important it is to keep food for emergencies and why it’s so important to eat what you grow. There is also something else you should consider and that what value for value exchange you can offer.
I’ve been thinking about all of these things. It makes me feel amazing to know that we have fruit trees, a garden and people we can barter with. It’s very old school and it’s great to trade value for value with no money involved. Don’t get me wrong, money is great but I’m figuring out other ways.
Greg and I do what I would call recycling the garden each year. We save seeds from what we grew during the summer and we start to plant the seeds early in the year to be ready for the spring. We don’t have to buy new plants each year because we already have what we need. This year I really want to learn how to can and save as much as we can. I can’t wait to take you along on this journey with us!
We will be recoding and blogging the whole experience.
