Frugal in Spring!

There is so much possibility with acreage. We close on our house very soon! Here my girls are holding hands exploring "the farm."

Of course, we save LOTS of money by growing our garden from seeds. I've seen seedling plants at ridiculous prices. My new gardening plot is about 90ft x40 ft. This will be one interesting canning season.

This is just a small dose of what we've started indoors. I've been reading about seed saving to make our dollar go that much further. I can't wait to eat sliced, garden fresh tomatoes!

I hope to start posting more as things settle down!

Frugal 4.0--we're updating our frugal :)

In the next few weeks we will be moving into our new home. It's got acreage. We have been (frugally) saving up pieces of lumber and wood that have been given to us to build a chicken run, and I've already started tons of my plants indoors. We have a lot of plans to move as much as we can towards being frugal and self-sufficient.

I can't wait to share it all with you!
