My garden so far:
I have ordered 2 new black cherry trees and some strawberries from our local conservation district. I'm deciding how to tell husband that I've done this but I always tell him everything. Of course he will know soon when Spring comes, so I'd better think of something quick before we have to go pick them up. Maybe I should start with dear, you know we need a small orchard so I....
We have yet to get a peach or a apple from the trees I've planted a couple of years ago but there is always hope that they will do well this year.
I also planted some milk jugs for winter sowing. I'm probably a little late on this one but we are still in the midst of winter here. This year I only planted early crops like lettuce, mustard greens, and some radishes. It seems this are the early crops grow the best for me in winter sowing. I have two small greenhouses that I will start planting in April.
This week I have felt like a huntress, hunting good deals all week!
We went to the Salvation Army thrift store at the beginning of the week and I found brand new Capri shorts for Spring for about $3.00 each. They still had the tags from the store on them! I also found a clock for my sewing nook ($2.99 -green tag it was half off), some Tupperware, and a coffee pot. It was so fun finding things we need at such a cheap price.
Meijers also had 50% off some clearance clothes. I found husband a Levi Winter Jacket for $20 and some clothes for the grandkids (Leggings for granddaughter and a Lions T-shirt for grandson).
Flashfood deals: 2 large trays of Spring Mix Lettuce $2.24 and $1.59, 3 Land o lakes Butter for $2.69 ea, 2 1/2 lbs of ground beef (laura's $3.74 & $3.91), steamtable red potatoes for $1.64, 4 Pork Loin Blakes chops for $1.24, and a apple box for $5.00. Total spent $27.43.
What are the ways you saved this past week?
