Growing savings

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I love cooking and easting fresh fruits and veggies. Especially with trying to eat better. But I hate spending the money and have to be better with my grocery budget.

So I decided that this year I was going to start a garden. My Mom had a garden when I was growing up. She has a green thumb and grew tons of different vegetables in her garden including tomatoes, cucumbers and eggplants.

I, on the other hand, have a black thumb. Therefore I am a bit afraid to start this garden. But I am willing to start.

So here I go. With my seeds in hand. Potting soil ready to go. And a strong desire to save some money.

    Gardening is fun, but if you've ever read "The $64 Tomato" you'll know that while growing your own my not be the most cost efficient it is really better because you know exactly what you've treated your plants with.

Keep up the good work. emoticon

    good luck, you will discover it is fun, good exercise, and tastes far better than store bought produce
I grow tomatoes, radishes, herbs, cucumbers, just the easy stuff that does not take a lot of room, but it is great, when I have an over abundance of cherry tomatoes (we all do) I wash them put them on a cookie sheet freeze them and put them in zip lock bags, great for stews omelets, wherever you want tomatoes, jut pop them in frozen, take off the stem first emoticon
Good Luck and Happy Gardening
