September Goals and Menu Week Ending September 7th

As summer is winding down, my indoor projects are picking up. My number one goal is to finish painting the basement; the dog room, the mud room and family room. I am no where near finished but will step up my game to really get this project finished by the end of September. I have a sofa to buy and chairs to slipcover but those may have to wait until October.

As far as the garden, this week, I am planting lettuce, arugula and spinach seeds. Broccoli and cabbage plants need to go in this week as well. September is time to plant grass seed and at the end of the month, I will plant some bushes. The only problem is this month is pretty dry so I have to be careful and make sure we are watering properly.

This week’s menu is about busy planting, painting and Labor Day on the horizon.
