Though currently I am in a bad situation at home with food and money, living on my own with my boyfriend at 17 is hard. This week we helped conserve energy by unplugging everything when not using it, and by keeping the lights off as much as possible. We planted strawberries Friday, and they should be sprouting soon. I have started a job at a local flower shop to learn more about gardening to plant in our community. I hope to save money, and energy by making our own food at home.
