Thrifty Thursdays

I decided to start a garden because I didn’t want to have to depend on the grocery store for my produce. I eat a lot of fruit and veggies and without a car, I can’t just get up and go to the store if I don’t have something. Also, produce is expensive. No joke. So I started a garden, but didn’t have much space to start.

Come Monday, my ghetto little garden will be moved to this area in the backyard:

Now that I have all this space, I will be able to plant even more stuff. My only concern is that I won’t be able to use the vegetables in time and they might go bad. So, this got me inspired to start canning. Here are some cool canning sites and tutorials that I found:
