What is everyone working on this month? Our garden has been going great! We have had tons of squash, tomatoes and jalapenos. We did have a lot of lettuce and spinach but it got really hot and they are not doing well at all now, I have never grown either before and I understand they do better in cooler weather and not the 100+ temps we have been getting, so I plan on replanting again in the fall. I was reading you can plant again in the fall in cooler weather. We were enjoying the daily salads so much. As far as my pantry items go, I have been trying to do some more stocking up on canned goods, when I realized I was totally out of canned corn the other day, I used to have so many cases of canned corn and green beans and now I am running out, lol. It's time to stock up. I did just stock up on 40+ rolls of toilet paper and 8 boxes of Kleenex when Amazon had their Prime day July sale. It's time to get things in order!

I was thinking about trying to grow a little herb garden in the house this winter.

Just started harvesting tomatoes.

This year I tried using some seeds that I saved last year (from someone who, as a hobby grows, about 26 sorts of heirloom tomatoes every year).

Maybe I need to work on how to save other seeds!

We are saving seeds from our tomato plants this year too and will try to plant them next year and see if they will grow.
