My mother used to tell me that whatever someone does on New Year’s day is what one will be doing all year. In deference to that, I am writing in my blog today. I hope that will prompt me to write here more often! As I was reading through many posts this morning as IContinue reading “HAPPY NEW YEAR!”

I have gone from wishing the rain would leave for awhile to now having more to do in one day than I can get done. It’s a wonderful feeling!! I am getting to harvest some food from my garden!! And it feels great! My raised bed of strawberries are producing big, fat, juicy, sweet berries!Continue reading “Harvesting Food”
Lessons to Apply to Current Affairs
If there ever was a time to be as self-sufficient as possible, that time is now. With extreme shortages of baby formula, grocery store shelves often bare and inflation steadily climbing we need to do for ourselves as much as possible. My mother and grandmother made it through the Great Depression by buying locally andContinue reading “Lessons to Apply to Current Affairs”
RAIN, RAIN, AND MORE RAIN!
First, I want to apologize to all of my readers for not posting last week. If you have been following my posts, you know we have had rain, rain, and more rain in Central Missouri! Last week we actually had four days in a row without any rain so I worked outside as hard asContinue reading “RAIN, RAIN, AND MORE RAIN!”
SPRING UPS AND DOWNS!
Life is full of ups and downs and that certainly was my life this last week. In the first place it rained a good portion of the week. I know rain is good for the earth, but we have had more than enough in this area for now. Next July and August these rains willContinue reading “SPRING UPS AND DOWNS!”
Build Up Your Garden Soil
I will begin todays post with a current event topic: As I write this, Russia invaded Ukraine last night. The sanctions the NATO countries are imposing on Russia will have an impact on all of us. Gas prices were already very high and this move is expected to cause gas to become even higher. IfContinue reading “Build Up Your Garden Soil”
We had snow and ice again yesterday, but the sun is shining brightly today. The other snow had just melted and now we have 7 inches on the ground again. It sure is pretty but I much prefer green grass and leaves! The seeds that I started last week are all up and growing, soContinue reading “SAVING FOOD!”
HURRY UP, SPRING!
It is early February in mid-Missouri as I write this. One and a half weeks ago this area received a dash of freezing rain and then 13 inches of snow. That’s a lot for Missouri. We still have drifts remaining but much of it has melted. The weather is going to drop to near zeroContinue reading “HURRY UP, SPRING!”
As I look to change my actions to help the Earth, I am immediately conscious of these categories: unchecked consumerism, food, transportation, and fashion. I may discover other areas as I work through these ideas, but these are the four I know I will cover on days of the future. Let’s begin with unchecked consumerism.Continue reading “ACTIONS”
ECO FRUGAL GRANDMA
Being environmentally friendly is currently becoming a fad with young people. I really admire Greta Thunberg and all she is accomplishing. It is also a fad to blame my generation and ones before mine for the shape the earth and climate are in — and rightly so. However, this Grandma (78 years old) is determinedContinue reading “ECO FRUGAL GRANDMA”
