One Penny Shy

This is my little blog, it will be filled with the things I do to pass my time. This includes gardening, crafting, cooking, and just generally being one penny shy of a government hating hippie.

Sex workers are human beings…. from cam models to strippers to porn stars. It may not be your cup o’ tea (mmm, tea), but it doesn’t give you the right to disrespect or shame them. 

Reblogging this again because people think that just because someone is a sex worker, means that they are not intelligent, can’t have normal lives, and treat them like complete shit.

100-year-old Dobri Dobrev travels more than 15 miles each day to beg for money, and gives every penny to orphanages and churches in Bulgaria. So far he has donated over 40,000 euros. Source

Next year’s garden

Will be a straw bale garden, as I am sick of the dense, hard, nutrient poor clay soil here. Plus I think they are a good idea for our needs.

Gardening woes

Having a horrible time with my garden this year. Slugs, earwigs, grasshoppers, cicadas, too few lady bugs and spiders. I love the moisture, but it is throwing the bug population out of whack!

why don’t more people talk about The Munsters

Oh gosh I forgot the best part of the speech. He also says “You can be black or white or yellow or…anything. It doesn’t matter.”

Prepping and planting

So thus far, we have burned about 25% of the detris from last year’s garden and mixed the ash back into our garden beds, as well as adding about 5 gallons of compost (from our compost pile) into each bed. After doing this, and mixing well, we planted most of our seeds on Saturday. Still have to get our potatoes and salad greens in the ground, but we are up and running for the year.

Already started the garden this year, going to be posting photos soon to update everyone! Trying for 46 varieties this year!
