4/11/15 gardening…

written 1/21/14 – We will have another garden this summer. We need to look at the seed packages and see when we need to start the seeds. Last year we saved two kinds of tomato seeds. We will try them to see if they sprout. This is our first try saving seeds. We have a small yard with a swing set in it so we have a small garden. We used to have three chickens so they had a large corner of the yard. Our yard is really too small for chickens so we gave them to a friend. They were named Millie, Hattie and Nettie. The kids called them Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We miss them. We still have the chicken coop just in case we can get some chickens later.

We don’t really have enough time to garden so to cut down on the work we have eliminated hoeing. When we plant the garden we put layers of newspaper around the plants, about ten layers thick. Then we put compost over the paper, completely covering the paper, the weeds can’t grow through the paper and the paper falls apart throughout the growing season and is almost all gone at the fall cleanup. If a weed does grow we add more newspaper and compost. The paper and compost also help to keep the moisture in the ground around the plants. We connect the hose to the sprayer and turn it on and off in the basement.  I haven’t figured out how to harvest without going outside.

4/10/15 family pictures…

written 1/20/14 – I just went through some family pictures to try to find things to write about. The kids have only been back in school a week but we are already in a routine. Routines don’t make interesting blog posts. I love looking at the old pictures. There are so many memories. Sometimes we get out the boxes of pictures and go through them. Two of the kids have made small albums of their favorite pictures to keep in their rooms. When William graduated from high school he said that he was going to go away to school. I made a photo album for him to take. I was going to take a tape recorder and record all of us talking…maybe one night at dinner…when the kids didn’t know that I was recording. Then if he got homesick he would have the pictures and the recording. In the end he didn’t go away to college so I didn’t make the recording. I probably should. It would be nice to have their voices on tape for me to listen to someday when they all move out.

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this. If I bring other people in to Blogsvertise I can get a percent of what they make. I have the link on the side of my blog. If you click on it you can register your blog and start making money. Please register from my link so they know that you came in through me. If you need to come back later to register please save my page as a favorite and register through my link when you are ready. Thanks ahead of time for registering through me and happy blogging!!!
