Sunday Savings on the Homestead Week 10: Plan Your Garden!

Every Sunday I will be posting a Sunday Savings on the Homestead. This posts will concentrate on one money saving thing you and I can do to save money for the week. Some will be easy, some will be be a bit difficult, and all will concentrate on one way to save money for the week. Please join me in trying to live a frugal life in 2015!

March is here! I can finally get excited about gardening! Not that the snow has gone away yet, but planning what to plant, where to plant, and how much is wonderful! 


I have already amended the soil a fair amount with old chicken manure and bedding. I might add in a bit of peat moss too because my soil is a heavy black dirt that needs some lighting up. 

What are you going to plant? Where? How much?

My garden is going to contain:
2 rows (18 plants) tomatoes - 9 paste tomato plants and 9 heirloom tomato plants
2 grape tomato plants
2/3 rows of snap peas
2 rows of green beans
1 row of yellow onions
1/2 row of red onions
1 & 1/2 rows of bell peppers
4 zucchini hills
4 summer squash hills
2 pumpkin hills
4 acorn squash hills
1 row of carrots
1/2 row of kale
1/2 row of spinach

I am still debating on planting potatoes. If I can expand the garden, I probably will plant a combination of red and white potatoes. 

Tonight (Monday), I plan on listening to Seeds for Generations' Garden Planning Webinar! Jason is very knowledgeable about gardening and will provide great information to help you plan your garden! 

What are you planning? Have you already started? 

Thanks for reading,
Erica
