I think the garden may produce a little after all. The weather here is starting a pattern of flooding and continuous rain so you can't get your crops out, then once you do, it's hotter than blue blazes and doesn't rain at all. Very trying.
I did one heck of a weed job on the root garden yesterday, trying to wage war on life's aggravations one weed at a time. I can't say that it was a definite cure for the mood I've been in lately, but it at least took the edge off by making me too tired and hot to put forth the energy it takes to be mad.
I haven't canned a thing this year besides some strawberry jam. I guess I could go pick raspberries today but my inner procrastinator says it's 100% humidity and 90 degrees. I still have a lot left from last year as long as I don't give it all away.
There were a lot of good sales this week, but I started a new budget. I am all for stockpiling goods at good prices, but sometimes we have to put that on hold for more pressing issues. The prepper in me hates it, but I have to break this cycle I've gotten into to justifying spending every cent I make putting stuff back. I have to save some money for some things coming up and I swear to you I have think about not spending that money everytime I see a good sale at least every 5 minutes. It's kind of like quitting smoking, you try to change for the good, but all you really get done doing is thinking about what your giving up.
