Made some food using 25 year old LTS. Testing the viability and quality. From homemade ketchup to scrambled eggs. It is all still good.

I worked on organizing the BOB better, listed what's missing, listed what needs repaired, got some water buckets, started doing some re-fresher reading on first-aid techniques.

I picked mulberries and then squished them and then separated out the seeds. I'm going to plant mulberry trees in the waste and natural areas around my area as future forage for animals, birds, and humans.

I also went for wild edibles walk looking for wild edibles and places to sow my mulberry seed.

What a great thread!
This week I got several storage type foods: rice, beans, salt, spices, wheat (hard red). I know it's very basic but I have really just started.
Today I planted 4 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, 2 varieties of cucumbers and added straw to the onions and potatoes that are already planted.
Then it Hailed!
Plants are ok, though.

1 Journal.

I am determind to start making my own notebooks and journals, I just need to raid my craft cupboard to see if I've got any of the equipment needed. I inherited craft supplies from my Grandmother, mother and Grandaunt so I may well already have the tools I need (ie awl, bone folder etc).

PS : Searched through the craft cupboard after watching a video on bookbinding tools and I found a lot of goodies. One item I thought was a letter opener looks very much like a bone folder but with a handle in Japanese Steel. I've also found some craft knives, a complete tweeser set with different heads and funcitons, nuts bolts and screws but they weren't long enough to make a wood press, and two awls. I've ordered the nuts etc so now I just need to get two nice bread boards to make the press out of - its not my idea but one from YT. I'm sure there were other goodies I inherited but I cant find them at the moment, the cupboard is under the stairs so not easy to get into.

PPS: While looking outside for the nuts etc., I found a leatherman type multi tool hidden. I've left it where it is just incase it was there for a reason, nice bit of kit, although as usual its a bit heavy. Please manufacturers make a womens version which is lighter - grovel grovel grovel pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase!

Planted more onions.

Transplanted my first tomato seedlings today :-) I was so excited. I also realized it is a very good thing that I started a ton. In that particular tray there were probably 200 little seedlings. Well, I'm still in the learning progress. I got enough good looking seedlings for 27 transplants. I still have a few trays of seedlings, but I'm no longer worried about having started too many. There certainly is a learning curve.

I always take the newspapers from the break room at work on my late nights. Yesterday the cleaning lady saw me and she said she'd start saving them for me :-) I use them for chicken bedding and for mulch.

The past two years I've worked a lot at increasing the quality and fertility of my soil. I've added lots and lots and lots of shredded leaves, chicken poop, etc. I knew it looked better than it started but I never noticed just how much. Recently, I've been working on doubling the size of my garden. When I compare the recently tilled spot to the "old" garden, I just can't believe how much of a difference it's made. I will certainly have to keep this up! One of the things I noticed was how well the water drains. We got a few days of moderate rain. In the new spot, there are several small spots of standing water, and it's all muddy. In the old garden (which is right next to the new) there is no standing water at all - it's slightly moist, but not wet. It sure wasn't like that two years ago!
