Sowing seed or Planting
not much planting happened this week. Most of the time in the garden was spent cleaning up for the coming bushfire season. A number of garden beds were mulched ready for the summer weather.
Planning for The Future
- All Christmas gifts planned and most purchased or made. I was hoping to make about half but the reality is more like a quarter. Next year I'll start my planning and gift making much earlier (that's the plan anyway).
Working for the Future - storing food, managing stores, preserving, building that home made cob or solar oven, adding house insulation, saving for manual grain mills etc
- Dried some apple - its very yummy. Hopefully I'll get time to do some more before Christmas.
- Found a supplier for local (as in roasted locally) organic fairtrade coffee. Will purchase coffee from here in the future.
Building Community - volunteering, donations, joining an existing community group, forming your own community group, taking a cake to a friend having a hard time, calling someone you just let drift out of your life, etc
- Voluntary work with a local youth organization
- no new skill this week
