Finders Keepers- The Weekly Challenge Update

Another busy week- one were I get to work the weekend :(

I don't mind working weekends, but I feel like I get disconnected from friends and family and my community when I work so much.

On the bright side going to work today I say some junk along the side of the road with my favorite words on a sign "Free Stuff" so it wasn't a complete bust!

Sharon's Independence Days Challenge Year 3, week 27
1. Plant something: Bok Choy, Chard, radishes, carrots
2. Harvest something: Some golden plums
3. Preserve something: Froze some plums using the new method I found
4. Waste Not: Found some treasure for free on the side of the road on my way to work- some old snow skis, maybe a chair project and a Metal Headboard that would be perfect as a trellis for runner beans!
5: Want not: Bought a solar shower at REI - have wanted one for awhile.
6. Preparation and Storage: Solar Shower for TEOTWAWKI. If not I like to shower outdoors and now have a camping shower.
7. Build Community Food Systems: Trying to get a meeting of the community garden board to go over the August 22 Kitchen Garden Day Celebration, which we are now doing it a week later on the 29, to meet with folks schedules.
8. Eat the food (cook something new): Microwave Jam;

Garden Challenge: Extreme Evangelist Edition-found a Metal Headboard for free that would be perfect as a trellis for runner beans!

Sorry to hear you have to work. I know what you mean about that sense of disconnection. My sweetie's working this morning, too, and it's really intervering with weekend plans!

Cool score on the 'trellis'.
