It is about that time of year again when the leaves start coming back and the birds start chirping. Or if you are in our neck of the woods the birds have chirped all winter long and the trees wish they could have kept their leaves on. It was last year around this time when we started putting together an idea to help us save money on produce… we built a couple of gardens.
This year we are planning on alot of the same things that we put in last year only started a bit sooner than we did last year. We put in lettuce, carrots, strawberry’s, cucumbers, squash, radishes, tomatoes, and beans. This was a great way for us to give the Kid fresh vegetables which he absolutely enjoyed. We have been told this year by a neighbor that the growing season in our area for the cold weather plants will be less than normal, which if you think about it, it has been warm enough all winter long to be growing some of the colder plants.
We did the all natural approach and used no chemicals so that we do not infest our child with some form of cancer or something.
We did notice a change in our grocery bill after planting the gardens because we had everything we needed to be able to make a salad every night or we were able to have green beans with our dinner.
What are you doing to help ease some of the pain of higher grocery prices?
