Due to some bills it looks like we may have to try to renew our contract here for a couple more years. If we stay here a couple more years this would've meant I could have started putting things together, planting things, and setting up a way to keep pests away, but now I can't. The money I had saved up for new gardening supplies already went to our bills and I had to sell my supplies in my garage so the money could go towards the bills as well, so I will not be able to save up again until those recent bills are fully paid off. It would also be just my luck that I found a hydroponic store a block from my house today too :sigh:

Group hug I've been checking craigslist to see if I can find free materials in my area to replace the ones I don't have anymore. For seeds, I have enough of my own saved up to do seed exchange for the time being and then I can try selling some of the plants I'm currently growing on craigslist for more seeds. I just want to start planting now while our summer weather already seems to approach us.

Have you concidered crowdsourcing your bills explaining your goals?

No, I don't like asking for money. Plus I dont think those things really work for smaller towns. Ive known someone who had one when they needed help with their medical bills and they only got $10 and mostly prayer wishes and it was open for a year. But, I will get my bills paid off eventually...it's just going to put us in a tough spot for a while.
