Frugal Gardening 101 Ebook

A couple of years ago, I teamed up with some of my buddies and blogged about frugal gardening. Now, one of  those buddies, Phoebe, has turned her passion, frugal gardening, into an ebook.

This ebook is for beginning and veteran gardeners alike, and it is on sale for only $3.95 right now.

Phoebe explains in this step by step, 50 page ebook how you can garden organically for small change. For instance, she has calculated that one package of tomato seeds ($2) will yield 120 pounds of tomatoes!

If would like to give gardening a whirl, buy Frugal Gardening now for only $3.95 and start growing your own organic produce for pennies.

We Love Watermelon!

We got to enjoy some fruit from our garden today!

In sad news, one of The Groovy Gardening Girls, Phoebe, will not be participating this week because she is spending every moment with her mother who is in her last days on this earth.

For this reason, this will be the last link up until August 31.

The State of the Garden

We are having moderate success with growing our melons and okra, although we haven’t harvested any ripe melons yet, and the majority of our okra, while it is large and healthy looking, hasn’t produced any flowers.

We love fried okra, but so far we haven’t harvested enough for our family, so we have given it to the neighbors. Hopefully, we will soon be harvesting enough for our family to enjoy.

We have 5 or 6 cantaloupes growing and a lot of flowers, so hopefully we’ll see plenty of those.

Baby carrots, anyone?

Watermelons and Okra Abound!

We are going to have a bounty of watermelons and okra here pretty soon.

We were hoping for squash and corn also, but it looks like we won’t be harvesting those this year.

Do you see that big guy in the lower right corner?

We are guessing we have at least 40 of those!

WE HAVE PRODUCE!!!

We are seeing signs…

that we will be enjoying at least 30 of these juicy babies sometime soon.

Praise God! We are finally seeing some produce in our “back 40 garden“!

By the way, when I posted the pictures comparing garden produce last week, I didn’t mean to give the impression that those were pictures of the same vegetable. I knew that one was a cucumber and one was a zucchini, and I expected you would know, too. I was just trying to show the difference between how puny one was and how enormous the other was.

Don’t worry. I wasn’t trying to sneak anything past you!

Comparing Garden Produce

You know I have been telling you that I have discovered the hard way how important compost is to a garden, right?

Well, I thought it would be interesting to show you the difference between produce grown with plenty of compost and fertilizer, grown by an old timer, and produce that was grown with insufficient fertilizer, with no compost, grown by a green horn.

Here is our little, meager cucumber from the garden with no compost. Can you see it there? It’s a tiny little thing, so look closely!

And THIS is from a friend‘s garden, who obviously knows a bit more than we do about how to grow things.

I believe we’ll be using compost next year!
