Farm Gal Needs Help
I would like to find some help to keep things going this year. It's for myself, my animals and hopefully my future.
It's been a cold winter here in this house. I'd like to own a water heater. My income is only Social Security and we got no raise this year even though everything costs more.
I just inherited a nice old Dodge truck, it's the first vehicle I've had in 4 years. It really needs new tires, with new tires I think this old truck will last the rest of my life.
I would like to plant a bigger garden this year, I am good at growing things and love to make fresh salsa. If I could grow enough I could sell some maybe.
I plan to take my new old Dodge truck around to yard sales and tack auctions and use my love of horse gear and old saddles to try and make more money. I also need new glasses and some dentures so I can see better and look better.
I didn't make a lot of plans for my retirement when I was a cowgirl everyday, but I've had a good life mostly. If you can help, I would be obliged and grateful. God Bless, and thank you.
Gofundme has suggested that I update for end-of-the-year reviewing so here goes:
Thank you so much for helping me get tires this year! My truck is so happy to have new shoes, and it was so helpful since my truck has been totally neccessary as the workhorse for my move.
Thanks to a lot of help from my family, I now have a much better rental home about 20 miles away from my old rental farm. Sadly, my old landlords repossessed the horse Magic and I had to give away my chickens, but I have high hopes of replacing chickens and gardens come this Spring.
My two great dogs and my fine kitty Smitty made the move with me, we all seem to love this newer better home. The house is bigger and the yard is smaller so keeping a horse again is out of the picture, yet there's plenty of room for gardening and landscaping this wonderful place. I am so thankful, and so grateful to be here!
Each of you that has thought of me with kindness and generosity in the past is in my daily prayers... if you would like to help me today, I'd reopen this gofundme just so that I could buy plants in the Spring instead of seeds, get a little more fencing to discourage the local wildlife out of my planned gardens, and maybe get some paint for the inside of this house- the outside is very neat.
Thank you for every kind thought, Seasons Greetings, and may your 2017 be a good year!
I could still really really REALLY use a little help! This was my garden in 2014, I couldn't afford to do it last year. I really want to garden again this year. I can do the work by myself, slowly, but I can't afford the new tools (a shovel, a new rake, 2 new hoses etc) and I need help buying seeds or seedlings. I have and want to continue growing the best fresh veggies ever, and I love to make good salsa with my own homegrown tomatoes and chiles. Thank you, please keep sharing this campaign, I am so grateful to all who've helped me. God Bless
