But it’s not just going to be cooking from scratch. I plan on living from scratch too. Hey I ran my own sewing and alteration business while I was in Nursing School. If I can sew wedding dresses, I can go back to sewing most of my own clothes. Last years garden is doubling in size. I ordered my heirloom seeds for the 2010 garden a couple of days ago from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds . Last year’s three types of heirloom tomato seeds have morphed into 80% of the garden being heirloom, so I can save the seeds for the gardens after that.
If I can do it from scratch, I’m gonna do it. If I can’t, then I want to be like the Amish and sit back and ponder on the importance of this item in my life, how owning it will benefit us or will it be a distraction from how we want to live. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not planning on shunning modern life, I still listen to my Ipod, use my washing machine and dryer, I just like to hang my clothes outside in the warmer months to dry in the sun, but in the winter or on a rainy day I sure plan on using my electric dryer.
So this is my challenge for 2010. If you want to join me, please do.
