Well, I have yet to post on one of my biggest improvements to date – gardening. Not only does it save us money, but it will also help us live a more healthy lifestyle. So, every Thursday I think I’ll give my readers a bit of a gardening update.
A few harvests this week, first off some potatoes:
These potatoes were a complete save, because they came from a grocery store yukon gold that had sprouted in the cabinet. They were mighty tasty in corn chowder!
Next up, my very first cucumbers. I planted several things later in the summer for a fall harvest, and I have a feeling this is going to be a prolific producer:
The first two are just right, but the third one I didn’t notice because it was sitting on the ground. My cucumbers are on a trellis so most are hanging up in the air. They’re quite prickly!
I’m excited at the idea of supplementing our diet with home grown vegetables. We have been herb gardeners for years, but this is the first year I’ve forayed into full fledged veggies. I know I can provide a healthy and cheap diet for my family this way. Look forward to more garden-y posts in the future!
