Garden fun on a budget

 

The weather has been very nice lately. I’ve been finding excuses to spend more time outside, and that really has me thinking I would love to finally start that vegetable garden I have always wanted.

Gardening Can Help You Save Money

I don’t have much of a green thumb, but would love to be able to save money on produce by growing some of my favorites! The cost of fruits and vegetables is rising and produce coupons are rare. I am always looking for ways to save money, so a garden seems like a venture I am ready to pursue!

The When, How, What and Where of Gardening

If you’re like me, you may need some help getting started. There are so many questions to ask when it comes to starting a garden. Basically the when, how, what and where of it all!

I’ve been doing lots of research, and some of the ideas I want to try are:

  • Growing herbs indoors
  • Building a raised bed
  • And planting a bean teepee!

I thought I would share with you the info I have found on doing each of these projects!

Growing Herbs Indoors

Herb gardens are fairly easy to maintain, which is the main reason this peaked my interest. Buying herbs at the market can really be hard on the grocery budget. You can start by either buying seed packets, or healthy seedlings. Basil, Rosemary, Mint and Oregano are some of the best herbs to grow indoors. It requires a container with good drainage and adequate amount of sunlight where you choose to place your herbs. You can check out a tutorial for building an
indoor herb garden here.

Raised Bed Garden

I’m really looking into building a raised garden. It seems to fit my gardening style and looks fairly easy for beginners. A raised bed benefits those with small spaces, limited mobility or poor soil with inadequate drainage.

Tips for Building Your Raise Garden Bed:

● Pick your location (make sure it has access to atleast 6 hours of sunlight daily)
● Decide on a height or your box – generally 8 – 12inches and pick your wood, make sure it is a non-rotting wood.
● Build your frame by forming a box with the wood and screwing together.

(You can also choose to purchase the click-together raised bed set from Home Depot for 28.97!)

● Fill your raised bed with bagged topsoil or high-quality potting soil.
● Choose the vegetables, flowers and herbs you would like to plant

Bean Teepee

Children are always excited to dig in the dirt! I think having a garden and including your child in the busy work is a fun idea and great learning experience for them. Depending on the child, they may just want a garden or something special of their own! I began to look for ideas and found this great idea to build a bean teepee!  I think this will be a fun family activity this Spring/Summer!

Home Depot Garden Club has great instructions on How to Build a Bean Teepee. Check it out for a fun sunny day activity with your kids!
