SUPER FRUGAL FRIDAY Video- in the garden!

Today's SUPER FRUGAL FRIDAY video is all about gardening! I have a friend that always gets an early start on her garden. We visited her home to see what she was planting today. I love having a garden and you are paid back by your time and effort with tons of FREE groceries from your own yard!

So, just to review, you can plant peas, broccoli, and cabbage right now in the crazy Utah spring weather! You can also put your tomato and pepper plants outside with protection like walls of water.

Kirsten also plants fruit trees in her back yard. She likes to think that fruit trees take as much water and attention as a maple tree, but the fruit tree pays you back with shade AND food! She got 40 qts. of peaches from 1 peach tree alone! She also has strawberry plants, blackberry bushes and tomatillo plants that thrive in the Utah weather.

Do you have a garden? I'd love to hear about it! Send some pictures to or post them on the Savvy Sister Shops Facebook page. I had a very small square foot garden last year with some tomato plants in it. You should have seen all the tomatoes we grew with just a few plants! I'm excited to see your harvest pictures this summer and fall!

Thanks, Kirsten!
