Hope Springs Eternal- The Weekly Challenge Update

Well this was a pretty Okay week. Got some seeds planted and even had some starts decide to make a show!
Some of my tomato starts are up, as well as punpkin, cukes and zukes, and Butternut squash. Hopefully it will be a successful year gardenwise! Even mowed the yard a bit (yes with my Nueton Rechargable Mower!) Onto the Challenges:
Sharon's Independence Days Challenge Year 3, week 11
1. Plant something: More tomato starts, some pumpkin starts, starting some evil broccoli, planted Minnesota Midget Cantaloupe in the green house, planted some more lettuce and mesclun for salads in the green house; planted peas
2. Harvest something: Some pea sprouts; Radish sprouts
3. Preserve something: Nada
4. Reduce Waste (recycle, reuse, reduce, repair or compost something): Found an old kid’s wading pool in mom’s dumpster, decided to try a raised bed in it; Reused an old recycling bin for planter for cantaloupe;
5. Preparation and Storage: Nada
6. Build Community Food Systems: Nothing
7. Eat the Food (cook or eat something new): Pea and Radish sprouts in a Broccoli slaw

Freeze Your Buns off challenge-Have not raised the temp once this month. Or turned the heat on. Or taken off my sweater.

One Small Change- Decided on my final “one small change” challenge for April. I think it is a doozy, more on that later- For March, I have not bought one pop or seltzer water, using my Soda Stream faithfully

Garden Challenge"Extreme Evangelist Edition"- Found an old kid’s wading pool in mom’s dumpster, decided to try a raised bed in it.
