|I let Eli cut our lettuce this week.|
We enjoyed a number of salads from our garden. Okay confession here, I actually grow loose leaf lettuce in our landscaping next to the flowers. :) Surprisingly it does really well. This past week we cut a few different types of loose leaf lettuce: Buttercrunch, Argula, and Tom Thumb (a bibb lettuce). Yum! Growing lettuce is an easy way to save money and is really easy. We have also successfully grown it in a container. In our big garden I planted more buttercrunch and a bunch of romaine lettuce.
We ate from our freezer for meals this past week. I have just a couple meals left from my most recent OAMC adventure.
|Nina & Poppy Steve bought a slip-n-slide and a sprinkler for us to play with us.|
|Eli loved the slip n slide!|
I finally weeded through the entire garden. After 6 days of rain it was really bad! We have lots of things planted and expect to have a number of items to pick by the end of July. Hopefully I will be able to put up lots of garden bounty in August and September. This week I am hoping to plant a few more rows.
|Love my boy!|
Eli & I canned 12 1/2 pints of strawberry jam. I purchased the strawberries on sale at our local grocery store. One day I would love to grow our own strawberries but I haven't had time yet. I would really like to build a raised bed for them. I have fond memories of my strawberry patch as a little girl.
I stopped by a yard sale and picked up a few t-shirts for Eli and a few spools of ribbon.
We visited the library for story time this week. Eli & Evangeline turned in their reading logs and each received a nice prize for reading.
What frugal things did you do last week?
