With the cost of living going up almost daily, we all need to find ways to cut back on our living expenses. Having a vegetable garden is one of the best ways. Before you say, “I do not have room for a garden in my yard” or “I live in a condo with no yard”, let me assure you as long as you have 4 square feet of space, you can have a garden.
That 4 square feet of space does not have to all be in one spot, ether. Containers and container gardening have come a long way in the last few years. We have found that you can grow plants, upside down, on a wall or in a milk jug and they will all save you money, plus feed you better. A little imagination, a small amount of money and some sunlight will fill your refrigerator with hundreds of dollars worth of food.
Now is the time to be choosing your gardening spot or spots, sorting your containers and deciding on the seed or plants you want to use.
In the next couple of weeks, I will be passing on ideas, tips and lots of recipes for you to use in your “holding the line on expenses” efforts.
Most of Northern America had a mild winter, this year. This allowed some of us to get a head start on our gardening for the summer. We are already seeing harvest of radishes, turnips and lots of greens.
There is nothing more beautiful on a salad plate than an assortment of spring greens. Add a few chopped fresh green onions, then drizzle it with a little Apple Cider Vinegar and warm Bacon Grease. Don’t let the bacon go to waste, crumble it over the plate, add a little Feta Cheese…..Can we say “yummy in my tummy”? Oh, yeah!
Spring has come, so, great summer gardens wont be far behind. We are going to have summer loven recipes, tips and fun, right here. You all come back soon, you hear!
Exciting things will be happening on this site. You will learn how to buy or grow the best, while using the least amount of your food budget.
We will also learn how to cook it, retaining it’s best flavor and freshness.
Come and join Hassie’s Family to be part in this most amazing time!!
