I was going to plant my garden this year, since I hadn't done it the last 2 years, but I have so many projects going, I haven't had time.
I am going to till it at the end of the summer to get it ready for next year though. The price of food is getting a bit too rich for my blood.
One good thing about living around farms is that when harvest time comes, I hit the U-Picks and get my stuff cheap enough.
If the farmers have too much left over at the end of the season, they sometimes allow people to go and help themselves for free.
We have blueberries that grow wild along the woods next to our house, so I pick them free of charge and enough for the year.
If I ever fell on real hard times, I'd manage with just my garden, the blueberries and I'd hit the dock during the herring run, when the fishing boats roll in and they give me all the herring I want free of charge.
Unfortunately, I don't have anyone to give me meat and I only eat the most expensive cuts of meat.
Good thing I don't eat a lot of meat because I'd end up in the poor house with my T-bone and sirloin steaks
