Saving in the New Year

     The beginning of a new year is the time we like to think of new resolutions.  What will we do differently?  What will we try to do better?  The way things are in this economy we all like to think about saving money.  Gardening can help you with that.  If you grow your own fruits and vegetables you can save money on food, not to mention that they taste delicious when you pick them straight off the vine.
     You can purchase many, many varieties of plants in a nursery.  But you can save even more money by starting your own seeds.  It's easy to do and you can use recycled items to get you started.  We'll talk about this some more in my next blog.


  1. I'm really looking forward to working in the garden.For the time being I'm trying to force some bulbs with mixed results.Have you ever done that?

  2. Yes, I tried paperwhites. They were beautiful! They weren't hard to do either. They were given to me as a gift by my sister, along with a beautiful glass container filled with small stones to grow them in. Hope you have great success! This is a great time to try that.
