2. Collected cans to recycle on various walks this week.
3. Made cheese, yogurt, Greek yogurt, and bone broth. I also cooked the last one of our Thanksgiving sale turkeys this week. We ate some of it for dinner, and I put the rest in the freezer and made bone broth with the carcass.
5. Planted strawberries and collected grass clippings to use for mulch. Harvested lettuce, cilantro and asparagus from the garden.
6. Made bag balm (udder butter... basically a salve) for my goat with ingredients that I had already on hand. A tin of the stuff costs $7.00 or so, which made homemade a real savings for my hobby farm.
7. Picked up a free tomato cage and free strawberry boxes. A nearby town had their annual "junk days" this week, so I was able to pick through some of the piles beside the street. I will use the tomato cage in my garden, and use the strawberry boxes to sell berries at the farmers market.
8. Listened to free podcasts/Youtube videos while I worked. I also read and took notes from some books I ordered from the library.
Some Youtube videos I made this week were:
Perennials for a Cheaper, Easier Garden
Weekly Grocery Haul (see above)
Wednesday: Date Night! (part of my dinner menu series)
Groceries from the Garden (Eat for $10 a Week, part 3)
How to Make Cheese EASY
As a housewife, I realize that it is easier to "read" content by listening to Youtube videos on my phone while I do dishes. Or garden work. Or cleaning. In addition, some of the content I have on the blog (tutorials, for example) are just better conveyed in a video than a blog post.
Slowly, I am putting a lot of content from my blog onto my Youtube channel. This easier for me than taking pictures plus writing and editing a post, even though it's been a crash course in videography with cheap equipment, poor lighting and background noise. That's what it will have to be, for now! If you have any suggestions for my videos, please let me know.
Til next time,
