Garden Tips

Check out our tips for planting a frugal garden. We have planted our Frugal Garden!  We are very excited to watch it grow and share the process with you.  This year we used our compost and tilled it into the garden before planting. This really gave us a rich soil and if you are a gardener, I highly suggest that you compost.

Tips for planting a frugal garden

We planted carrots, radish, squash, zucchini, green peppers, onions, pumpkins, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, cilantro and oregano.  In addition, my mother-in-Law gave us thorn-less blackberry bushes.  We also have our blueberry and raspberry bushes that we planted last year.  We also planted Marigolds as a border to our carrots because we were told they would keep the bunnies away – we are hopeful!  Our squash is already starting to bloom so it is very exciting!

It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to start gardening.  It is worth the time for sure at your first harvest.

  1. It is so good to see others growing their own produce. I got a greeen thumb from my dad , but have only really taken a serious interest in it the last couple years. Last year I started with mostly prestarted plants from HomeDepot or Lowes. This year was different though. I am in a different home now and we have a lot more property than last year. Also my interest in growing as much as possible and starting it all from seed has really increased. I ordered lots of catalogs last year on the internet . I received the 2010 and then also got the current ones when they came out. There is so much more to offer when you are starting from seed. So many more varieties of vegetables, colors, shapes and sizes.Sure it’s easier to pay a little more and have it started for you, but the excitement I get each day when I go out and water these plants and see how much they have grown is so well worth the time and effort I have put into each one. Plus there is the added benefit of knowing exactly where my produce comes from .
