June Outside Projects

My husband and I spend some of  June doing outside chores.We got a late start on the vegetable garden this year and was not able to find some of the plants we wanted. We spent a little more this year than we normally would. We had to buy more single plants than we usually do instead of 6 packs. We'll not be putting it off next year and will do our traditional Mother's Day weekend planting. We decided not to plant our second garden plot this year since it has become a lot of work to do two. We completed 23 outdoor projects this month. All our projects were free except the vegetable garden which cost $50 to buy plants.

Our community opened up a food pantry this month which I think is a great thing for our small area. It will help many people that can't drive to the next town which is 30 minutes either direction. I plan to donate our extra produce from the garden to Community Blessings Ministries. At some point I'd like to volunteer in the panty or with the meals they serve on Wednesday evenings.
