Since I have decided to join Farmgal’s challenge, I figured that I should at least a few times a month give updates on how it goes. If anyone wants to join, the challenge is on the link below.
In getting “ready” for the challenge I took stock of everything that I had. It will be an interesting food month after coming off the $25.00 challenge last month ($10.00 food for humans, $15.00 limit for critters) I blew last month’s challenge on “human food” with a single item – organic raw blue agave syrup. It will last me at least 6 months. I just came in under the limit with the critter food – $11.00 on horned worms and $3.00 on red bran.
This month’s challenge started with only 6 eggs (I don’t have chickens), no fresh milk – only powered and no fresh veggies or fruit. I have a lot of dried fruit and veggies but decided to start some sprouts & do an indoor “greenhouse” out of and old fish tank. It will be a few weeks before I get any greens from the indoor greenhouse plantings.
