IDC Update

1. Plant: planted tomatoes, onions, beets, dill, oregano, basil, cilantro; did some weeding in between storms/rain showers
2. Harvest: basil, oregano, thyme, parsley
3. Preserve: nothing this week
4. Reduce waste: "recycled" leftover stir-fried squash/zuke into a casserole; ate leftovers for lunch that I REALLY didn't want to eat; regular recycling stuff; working on potty training the 2 y/o
5. Preparation/storage: replaced sugar used in canning last weekend; bought some coffee for the pantry; hubby's almost done with the chicken coop (yay!!); discussed quantities of various home-canned items we’re aiming for, so as to better judge how much u-pick produce we need to buy; discussed foraging with mom (I’m so glad she doesn’t think I’m nuts anymore)
6. Community Food System: contributed more of H's pee dipes to the anti-deer campaign (I am shocked that it's actually working!!); discussed how we're going to handle the herd of wild hogs that are ransacking our community's gardens
7. Eat the food: stir fry from farm-stand veggies; rice, pasta, jarred sauce from storage; basil, oregano, thyme, parsley from the garden; muffins, homemade bread, biscuits made from pantry; homemade jam
