Small Successes

1) We finally planted our garden! After weekend after weekend of Hubby slaving out there, uprooting the grass, digging out the rocks, etc., the bed was ready to go. Big Girl and I planted it yesterday morning while the baby slept. Now we've planted and watered, and the harvest is up to the Lord!

2) We have been eating extra fruits and vegetables, which has been a goal of mine for our family. I had spent over $20 before I even got out of the produce section on my Wegmans trip on Tuesday! (I'm hoping the garden will help with that.) My current goal is to make sure we all always have at least a serving of fruit or veggies at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I'm pretty sure I can manage that within my $350 monthly budget. That is one reason I'm not working on lowering the budget right now; I want to refine our diet a little first.

3) I took my daughter to the park yesterday, even though it was my one day with the car and I had many errands to do. I was rewarded by a beautiful day and one happy little girl!

  1. Congratulations on your successes this week! I'm anxious to start our garden here. I already have a few plants started indoors & we've killed the grass where the garden will be. Your daughter is adorable & looks like she's having a great time!

    You've got some great ideas on your blog. I look forward to reading more of it!

  2. I know what you mean about the fruits and vegetables. I get wholesale from a co-op which buys in bulk, and that REALLY helps, but still . . . I'm super envious of your garden. Wish we weren't renting! :)

  3. Congrats on the garden. The lettuce is up in mine so you will be enjoying freshly picked lettuce with your burger on Monday!
