more than everybody this Marc Crawford sustainable frugal living and it is December 15th we're getting some sunshine as you can see it's really not that cold but I got thin Bloods covered up anyway I wanted to give you a quick update of our garden we've been somewhat successful come with me we'll check it out ok this is our new structure here that we created with the free pallets we got videos on that you can check out we've got the landscape fabric inside blind inside with compost we actually we have the the core Google method they call it the kugel I guess and there's like say there's videos on that the rest of it filled up with compost now look at the earlier video you would have seen this was full of cucumbers against this welded wire here and we were able to harvest quite a few cucumbers and Teresa has pickled four deal pickles and bread-and-butter pickles I think they call him was really cool and then the rest of them had in our salads against end over there we had ochre plants we had ochre plants over the over there as well okra plants didn't make it we've got a little bit of harvest from the okra but not month I mainly just the small ones for salads the the freezes that we had we had some early freezes here in Texas as well as across the country as the second freeze pretty much did in the okra plants and killed them so the rest here were snap beans and they were Bush beans and we've got we got a lot of those those were very delicious very good and then we had some world crow planted down here you'll see in the other video but anyway this been I plants root in the soil that actually adds to the nitrogen to the soil as it breaks down and I tilled it up at chicken manure compost in this area out it with leaves and so that one's put to bed for the winter that one's done now this bed over here we had tomato plants here and we probably got maybe a dozen tomatoes off of that and of course the like I said the okra plants were here they froze out and died we got a few but the tomatoes we actually had to plant the we had to harvest the tomato plants before the second freeze because we knew it was going to be a hard one and would kill them so several probably about six half-a-dozen of the tomatoes we had to put in the house and let them just ripen in there the rest of all this is beets and they're our root crop so they've done well through the freeze they've been okay and still growing healthy and strong as you can see here we did an intense planning method with the beets so they're not gonna be real large or over in this area here we have our carrots and again we did an intensive planting for our carrots which you can go either way if you do the regular spacing you'll get the larger carrots if you do intensive spacing like this you get more carrots but you're going to get the smaller salad size carrots that's what we were going for here another reason we weren't really sure how well they would do and you can see here they did very very well and it awesome one of the videos I meant 'add what they look like they look pathetic after the thunderstorm is beat them down but obviously they all came back very very well so we've got lots of basically baby carrots over here the last bed of our four new ones it is you can see put to bed do the same thing over here with the compost and leaves put to bed the only thing is we left is the sugar pea plant the one sugar pea plant that we didn't tie up to the welded wire we just left it on its own and it actually survived if you look in the earlier videos we had like three or four plants here that we're just hanging down I'm pretty sure what I did wrong on these just for your knowledge is I planted them too shallow and so they grew but the roots weren't very deep and that was detrimental to the plants so they didn't make it but this one here we we just kept kind of pushing up this way so it would stay out of the dirt and it actually survived there's a couple of plants there and this one actually has some sugar peas on it to harvest I'll show you one maybe you can see one right there this one right here that one right there is ready to harvest but doesn't have a whole lot on it but the one surviving sugar pea plant okay that's it for our new area let's go into the existing garden structure over here check it out our existing garden structure but actually they're all existing this is our older garden structure along with the UV tarp on it or shade cloth the hydroponics was a pathetic disaster we're just busy with the livestock and different things so we're going to let this go until next spring we put pearl light in it and that was a big mistake it's just a lot better with gravel we've we've done it with gravel before and didn't have the gravel to put in until we had lots of pearl light as you can see the bag over there and we got bags over here or perlite so the issue with the perlite is make some ass floats too easily it gets down into the orifices where it drains into the tub and that's a big issue so we're gonna go back to the pea gravel on this I'm sure it'll be a lot better anyway let's take a look right over here we've got these are some transplants from the cups we actually germinated from seed and then transplanted on me here this is spinach you can see there we've got about a half a dozen spinach plants and they're doing real well very good plants and the rest of this is more radish we planted a lot of radish one reason is because radish is very easy to grow and as you can tell here this is pretty much ready to harvest we're going to harvest most of this today if not all of it I said in earlier videos we love radish with barbacoa tacos and salads I love it I mean some people it's not for them it may not be for you but it gives your salads a little bite a little spice and it's healthy very good for you my favourite is in barbacoa tacos with onions cilantro that's the best so anyway let me pull one of these up and you can see without pulling them up here you can see you can see them right there they get that one that's what we're looking at see how big that one is anyway we've got quite a few of them in there time to harvest we'll give some to family we'll eat a bunch and over in this bed we have some broccoli which has just been tore up by the pests you can see just tore up this there's still barely hanging on but I don't think they're gonna make it through the winter and the rest of this bed is yet to be composted and we're gonna put some chicken manure or compost in this on the top of it fill it in and put leaves on it same way put it to bed for the winter get rid of all of them the weeds anyway thanks for watching the video again this is Mark Crawford with sustainable through

today in this video I'm going to share with you how I organized and simplified my kitchen to make it more efficient hi guys welcome back and if you're new here my name is Noemi so for today I got very exciting video work for you I already made a video on how I simplified my kitchen and I have many hacks and ideas that I shared with you and I will link all those videos down below for you guys but today I'm gonna go more into the depth to explain where I put the things and how I organize the things and what's the reason behind that so I have already talked about this work zones that I created in my kitchen and the reason for that because sometimes we want to work together someone has been trying to prepare a smoothie while I'm starting to preparing making a lunch or dinner so that was the starting point to create those work zones it has been working so amazingly is so efficient I thought it's really worth to share so this would be the first zone or area that I want to talk about and when I'm talking about working zone I'm not just talking about the countertop it has the key to create this work zone to think about in vertical lines like whatever you will need whatever you prepared in that area it has to be handy over there so that means you don't have to go away and leave that space and go back and forth you are more efficient with the time as well so in this area as you can see my sink is over there so whenever I wash the dishes I always put everything on the right side so the easiest way that motivates me the most to put away the dishes and not to procrastinate as much is to make it as easy as possible to be able to put away the dishes so everything that we use during the day we opt out with an open chef and of course it's not everyone else's cup of tea but we like this open shop because everything that is on that we use it every single day so it doesn't get dusty and I don't have to open and close the cabinet and I don't have to open anything for that for eating or measuring go with everything is in one location and the second one would be all the things that we use for drink or eat so even my husband if he makes the smoothie here he doesn't have to step anywhere as he can just grab the drawer or the glass whatever he used and he can just pull it out there and on the bottom cents as I mentioned I wash the dishes here I can just put away right away all the things that we use we have on the go this is the dishes that we use for this area function as a smoothie making area so we are putting away the dishes from here and also preparing smoothies so that means in the morning my husband can be here and doing the smoothies meanwhile I'm in that corner I don't have to step away because I got my sink over here and the stove is over there so as I'm preparing the vegetables or the peeling washing can happen here and that way we don't cross each other's way so for smoothy things like what we put in the hemp seeds and all those things we had only place to put all the pantry items over here so that means my husband can go between that area without me crossing without crossing each other way so we keep the smoothie maker right here down below because it's very easy to grab and I also want to point out something simplified my work and maybe it can give you a different perspective to think about it because I know a lot of people love things to keep on their countertop for a reason either you don't have a space but if you can't get a space to put it away the reason I'd like to put away all those items that we use every single day because to me to put away that Vitamix it's literally takes not about 90 second or 10 seconds the answer 10 seconds to put it back under this minute when I'm putting away I'm making a big favor to myself because of the rest of the day I don't have to go around that object I don't have to cleaner on that I don't have to wipe it off because it's a kitchen it's got grease if you have watered everywhere as we wash the dishes so it would get messy and I would have to wipe off constantly so that mean it's put in a way out of the way so this would be a very prepared or the smoothies okay now we are turning into a kitchen tour but this is where we keep our saponin because it's right next to the glass so when He pours out the smoothie we can take care of in the morning all the supplements obviously under the sink we keep all the things that we need for washing dishes and where we keep our garbage as well and I will get back to that because I have some great ideas with that but as we go to that corner this is where I keep all those jars and items that I use to either prepare a food so if I'm repairing the food here I can use the glass right away and also once I've finished with the cooking I have the jars on there this is where I keep the leftover so I have these jars and now of course I have bigger bigger ones but they are in the frigerator now but this is what I use to put my food in there and it's right next year so I can just bend over and put it here take it off and put away the food and it can go into the frigerator okay so for this section so that was the preparing and put away a section for this section that's pretty obvious like this is where we keep the pots and pans so we don't have to walk that much it comes handy okay so this is the area where I like to prepare all the baking so I've got the oven over here well if I have to mat a coconut oil's right next to the oven so it's a perfect communion spot and it's a big spot to make all those cookies and dough's and all of the panty items that we have it's over here we have a shelf where we keep our apples and fresh fruits but basically this is all the pantry things that we have and I worked with my drawers I really love this because they have the same height as the drawer so we can use the drawer all the way till the end and here's the best part with that you guys this is if I open this it function as an extension of the countertop so when I cook I don't even have to physically move these drawers anywhere I can just use my spice out of here so this is the salt and I know other ones and I can just remove the top and I can use that and once I'm done I'm just putting it back and I can just close that and it's out of the way it's not on the countertop I don't need to put away anything at all so when I bake over here I've got everything all the flowers all the cost and everything that we use is in here so in this zone I do the baking so the best part with this top layer of drawers as you saw with the spices it's kind of like working and adding an another layer because I don't have to move the thing it's right there handy Adam have to bend over it's kind of like just spitting out the things so those things that I would normally don't keep out on the countertop but when I'm using them and I would have to like the cookbook actually I don't have a cookbook this is just my favorite is that I collected over the years but I can just open and check whatever I need and I will have to put it out on the countertop I just check whatever I need I can just close it and shut the drawer and it's out of my way so I'm trying to organize my kitchen the way we have is I have to move your things or laps and I have to walk less and guys it counts so much it can't like we have to be very appreciative with our time because this is where we can lose precious time where we just doing repetitive things back to the food preparing area I forgot to share with you guys something that is really cool so when I prepare the food I have the oven here I keep my cutting board over here so that means and the knife is here so I have the cutting board and the knife nearby so I don't even have to walk together those items so the other way is happing me tremendously I have this garbage can so we do have a relatively small garbage can I like to use the small one because we don't really have that much garbage so whenever we have of the head like that we buy a bread in or we buy from Costco the frozen fruits I like to save those bags to collect our whatever garbage we make but the great things about this box and this is from Ikea because I know if they are going to us that this is the same height thing so it has a perfect height if I place this in the kitchen sink I can just open this bag and everything that I chopped off and I want to throw away so you can put either a compost bin or a garbage wherever you prefer or you can but if I chop of the vegetables I can just push everything right away into the garbage can so once the food peeling is done once the food shopping is done I can place this on the top of the countertop and it may don't sound as a big about the other but I'm telling you guys I I can only tell what I experience but in my experience I rather to throw things into the sink instead of opening the cabinet and just putting the gloves yet because when I'm cooking I'm busy if something is always burning or I just have to do something all of the sudden so I always procrastinate but when it's up here on the countertop it just makes it so easy instead of putting anything I just put it over there and then once I'm done with the cooking I can just put it away [Applause] so I just put it away to show you that I didn't have to step away so that would be the other way around when I pulling out these things if I put the garbage right there and I put the knife and the cutting board over there I didn't have to move or walk so this is the key to the zone organizing it just really designed or on your needs so you can create those zones to your needs like what you have to prepare what is your family member prepared so for us this is what has been working out the best what do I mean to put it garbage oh this other page the world with you a body I created a someone organizing [Applause]
