What to Talk About


This is my little garden(don't look at the crumbling bricks) It is great because it just keeps reseeding itself, if only our money did that. The only thing that I planted this year was some basil. The baskets have lettuce growing in them-mostly. We got a huge amount of rain and most of the seeds that I lovingly planted were washed out into the actual garden. So I replanted the lettuce seeds in the baskets and now I have lettuce everywhere. I don't know why it didn't dawn on me that they would grow in the ground and the baskets. We like salads so all is good.
And toluna paid me again so I'm at $140. I'm really hoping that Christmas will only cost us a few hundred. I also have almost enough for three gift cards from My Points.
My cheap world,
SonyaAnn

I love how well you treat bunny rabbits around your house. Next Easter ought to be amazing!

Mark said...

Well, that's more of a green-thumb than I have. So see, you are not the worst gardener in the world. That's a compliment! m.

Sheila said...

I have a gripe w/Toluna...every time I try and do a survey I don't qualify! What gives?

slugmama said...

Can I send our rabbits, chipmunks and now a groundhog over to your yard instead of mine now?
They can keep your lettuce trimmed instead of mine for awhile...ugh!

I have 1 kids left for the bulk of the summer now and he never leaves his room. Are you jealous yet?lol

That is amazing that you have made so much with Toluna. I just couldn't make money there. Maybe I should check it out again.

Jill said...

Cute garden! Any amount of self sufficiency is great! :-) Have an awesome night!

Blessings,
Jill

Jane-I know, we are so good to all of God's little creatures!

SonyaAnn said...

Mark-Well dear, let's see if we actually grow anything to eat. Just cuz it is growing doesn't mean that I won't find a way to kill it!

SonyaAnn said...

Sheila-Hmmmmm, I'm not sure about that. But I will say that at times, I have to go through about 20 surveys before I qualify for 1. I open about 4 windows and then just push through them until I qualify. Also, the emails that they send you are different(mostly) from the links on their site. So make sure that you try to qualify for them. And last but not least, the little surveys on the right side worth anywhere from 15-45 points, make sure to do those. They will help you to get more surveys. Oh and make sure that your profile is up to date. That's about all I can think of for the moment.LOL

sluggy-Don't send another living thing here! Animal or teenager! But since you have only one left at yours, I think that I should get to send one to you or two and a husband. Just a thought!

SonyaAnn said...

Frances-Thank you and refer to the comment I left for Sheila, maybe that will help. Also when they ask if you are the head of the house say yes!

SonyaAnn said...

Jill-Thank you, thank you Ms. Sweetie!

Jackie said...

I love your little garden area. It inspires me to try and build something similar beside our front porch. Although I am sure my family will just shake their heads as I try. LOL I haven't had much luck in growing plants.

SonyaAnn said...

Jackie-I'm terrible when it comes to getting thins to grow. And forget about actually being able to eat it! But I'm trying!
