But this summer I plan to try to create a system similar to the one I got for Christmas which is the one I'm using now. It's a frame with a hanging light that can be adjusted over a planter.
Yeah... I can garden in the dead of winter. ;)
So far, I've just been looking at the seed catalogs, but sooner or later, I will try to plan where to plant what. With a limited area, I have to be pretty creative at times, but so far, so good. I already have most of the seed that will be needed this year, but of course, I gotta try something different now and then.
Frugal take on a garden is all that good food. It can be cheaper than the grocery store kind and it's a whole lot better.
Ways to make a garden more frugal:
- Container garden in castaway containers.
- Make your own compost.
- Hoe and pull weeds by hand.
- Try no till gardening
- Make your own special fertilizers
- Water by drip irrigation instead of overhead
