If you are looking for a way to save some money with out having the care of your own garden, you can always visit your local Farm. Visit PickYourOwn and search for a local farm in your area where you can tour their farm, pick your own flowers, veggies or fruit all for a very reasonable price! We live near Cincinnati and I found 3 that are within driving distance for us to visit and pick our own!

The PickYourOwn site offers a ton of information! Below I included a farm in my area- they tell you exact location, what they have to offer and any visitor information you may need to stop by! They also have reviews from readers so you can see what others have to say about a local farm. Some farms offer a lot of options or they may specialize in just one produce like the farm below!

>2 or 3 FREE Plants- Great Mother’s Day Gift!

Cherry Hedge

We have been growing some of our own fruit and veggies for 2 years now and I absolutely love the convenience of walking outside and grabbing food right from the yard! Last year we added a apple tree and a peach tree and plan to add a cherry tree this year. So finding this deal got me super excited!! Purchase 2 plants and get 2 FREE all for $9.99 plus shipping and handling! Who doesn’t love cherries!

They also have a great deal on Lavender plants– buy 3 get 3 FREE– all for $9.99, just pay shipping and handling!! We bought my mom a lavender bush for Mother’s Day last year and it is close to her bedroom window. She can smell the lavender every night while she is sleep, which they say will help you sleep better! That is where I intend to plant ours, we need all the help we can get!! There would make great Mother’s Day gifts!

Ways To Save- Gardening In Egg Cartons

Photobucket

WooHoo!! We finally were able to get out and plant a few veggies this weekend and hopefully our seedlings will be ready to go in the ground very soon as well. We did get a little bit of a slow start this year with our seed planting but they will be ready soon!

We decided this year that we wanted to use more items that we would normally just throw away for our garden. One item we used this year to get our seedlings started was egg cartons. We added some dirt into each little whole and then added some seeds and water. Our girls labeled the top of the inside of the carton with which seeds they added in each whole and as they grow bigger we will then plant them in the ground!!
