"Follow the prophet. He has counseled us to plant a garden and fruit trees. This year don’t just think about it—do it. Grow all the food you possibly can. Also remember to buy a year’s supply of garden seeds so that, in case of a shortage, you will have them for the following spring." (Vaughn J. Featherstone)
Gardening really does help us - even though I really hate it in every way, we cannot love everything. I do love eating fresh produce though and canning the excess...so I push on and plant a garden.
So consider putting in a garden this year as a frugal way of stocking up.

I feel like the more we learn, the better we will be able to manage frugally. Building skills is way important, knowing how to do certain skills will save you so much money. Learn all you can and put these skills to use.
Gus uses his skills of watching birds and wildlife everyday.
This week I embroidered a mask I made. Of course, a certain someone was closely observing to see if I did it right.
I made bread as usual.
I did get a bit more spinning done this week. I am nearing the end of this spinning project.
The seeds are growing well...

Gus and Missy say now is not the time to let your guard down, continue being safe. You can make a mask and embroider on it too. Missy says she can supervise.
