Gardening – It’s “that” time again…

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 26, 2011

My patience is hanging on by the final thread. Winter drags on…I’ve been over it for weeks now.  I’m beyond ready to move into spring!

And I get to…kinda. Starting seeds indoors will help me hold on to that last thread, as I know I’ll be planting the little sprouts outdoors before I know it!  I can almost taste the sweet delicious vine ripened tomatoes now!!!

Please head on over to and read more about ordering seeds and making plans for your garden!

I can’t wait for it to be spring as well! If you haven’t looked at the Family Fun magazine this month, they’ve got some cute ideas on planting indoors as well.

This will be my first time planting a garden (we bought our first house in Nov last year) I’m so excited to be able to actually plant something.

I’ve already been thinking about my little garden. I checked on it the other day and strawberry planst have survived. Thinking of 3 tomato plants, red peppers, onions, lettuce to name a few. Will see how warm the spring is. Last year wasn’t a good year for gardens as it was so cold too long.

I just wanted to say that I got your cookbooks about 2 weeks ago and I’m actually reading the chapters before the recipes!!!! I’m on pg 24 right now and am so glad I read the intro. I also spent 6 years overseas and upon returning felt like a fish out of water ever time I went to the grocery store. All these cards to swipe and coupons coming at me from every media it was too much, even after being back in the States for 8 months!!! So I was so relieved when I read you went through the same thing and that I wasn’t a complete idiot when it came to grocery shopping. You have provided some great tips that I had never thought about concerning coupons. Can’t wait to learn about stockpiling!!!!

We decided to add to our garden this year and were able to purchase premade 4×4 cedar boxes at home depot for $34 each-EASY! Hubby is outside now assembling our 3 new boxes and we’ve spent the last two days deciding what will get planted where. It’s very exciting because it means Summer is just around the corner!

I’ve already got my garden planned out. I’m trying to follow the square foot gardening plan for an extended harvest. I planted cabbage and broccoli last week, this week I get to start onions and cauliflower. >^.^<
