Sunday was a race against the weather. Sporadic rain was expected, so we worked fast. The garden looks small in the photo, but in the way, way back you can see Hubby is tilling up more space for more garden. It's big. We will be putting up another fence for the pinto beans and cucumbers this year. Hubby's co-worker tried a fence for his cucumbers, and said it saves a ton of garden space to plant more of other garden goodies.

I had planned to keep track of all our expenses, and compare it to our harvest, but forgot. I do however, remember the cost of the red onions - $.83 total.
That's about a penny per onion. You can't beat that, along with no pesticides or chemicals.
. . .next, I was back inside to start cleaning for a "send off" party for my 20 year-old daughter who is soon "shipping out" for basic training for the National Guard. I didn't get much done, but got rugs washed and porch chair cushions washed. Thankfully, my 17 year-old daughter did some much needed cleaning in the kitchen for me. My youngest actually helped in the garden. I should have taken a photo, ha ha!
Today is Hubby's birthday. He loves peanut butter and chocolate, so I'm baking him a homemade peanut butter cake with homemade peanut butter icing. He requested taco night for his dinner.
Here's where my posts may become less and less...gotta get off here and tend to the animals and water the garden. No rain now for two days. Two rain barrels are empty, but I have two, which are on the front of the house that are full. I am thankful for that.
Ah.....gardening....the thing that keeps me in shape......
