Tightwad Tuesday...In the Garden

Gardening is a great way to save money. The exercise alone is worth the cash saved at the gym! Getting outside and alone with your thoughts great for your mental health. I enjoy fresh cut flowers from my own garden May through the first frost.  We enjoy feeding the birds and butterflies all season.  Putting your own food up may cost more in the beginning ( equipment) but over time will save you money. Its a great feeling to do your own canning! Its not rocket science. Anyone can learn.

Here is a free ebook on canning and preserving food from Homestead Harvest: http://site.wayzata-homestead-harvest.com/PreservingEbook.pdf

On the same page you can download a free Gardening Journal.

    I started to repot the transplants I have started so far. I have been repotting hot and sweet peppers and leeks. I am going to repot the stevia plants that have made it so far. [0=

  2. Gardening is a great money saving idea. I like the idea of free seeds too. That way if they don't grow, I didn't spend any money. Thanks for sharing those links!
