Garden Goodness

For the first time in a long time, I have good news to report about the garden. The recent rain has brought life back to the garden and the veggies are performing like they’re trying to get an Academy Award!

The cucumbers are cranking out, the tomatoes are catching up, the beans are starting to win the battle against whatever critter is chomping on them, the peppers are a-plenty, all of the onions have been harvested, the peanut plants look great, there are a million blackberries to be picked and we are are starting the plantings for our fall crops and/or to attempt to replace what didn’t make it due to insects. Don’t worry, we have a master plan. 🙂

I’ve also collected all of the seeds from the cilantro plants. As many of you know, the spice known as coriander is really the dried seeds of the cilantro plant. So I will use the coriander in my kitchen and as gifts. I also stepped on the seeds that fell into the dirt and even shook a few from the plant into the herb bed so we’ll get some more cilantro next year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our aaawwww moment for today: We spotted a fawn by the pond all alone. He was absolutely adorable!

About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    This really is amazing. I can barely grow a cactus. I had no idea coriander was cilantro seeds. I’m pretty useless with all matters of food and cooking.:(
