Frugal Gardening 101:: Planning Our Summer Planting

by GettingFreedom on June 21, 2011

As gardening season continues here in Southern Missouri, we are beginning prepare for our second planting. Thankfully we are blessed to be able to have 2 growing seasons–a Spring planting and a Summer planting {which takes place around the first of July}. We’re really banking on our Summer planting to yield the most of our veggies this year, since we were unable to plant very much in our spring planting because of weather and my mom’s health.

In the meantime, though, we’re loving our fresh lettuce–and are in full anticipation of when we get to harvest our cabbage and cauliflower!  And since I’ve not had any cucumbers to pickle, or green beans to can—I got adventurous and canned something NOT from my garden!  No one was able to guess over on my facebook page when I mentioned it there. Here’s a hint::  Usually I make these up in big batches, and freeze them.

Now it’s your turn!  How is your gardening growing this week?  How is your family enjoying the fruits of your labor?
