To stick with her theme, Aaron and I posted about some of the money-saving tips we've discovered so far in our victory garden. It wasn't hard, since growing our food has definitely proven to be an economic advantage, albiet a small one sometimes.
For those intrepid followers though who want to know more, here are a few additional tips to compliment our guest blog:
- Lettuce doesn't need to be harvested all at once. You can harvest only the leaves you need and leave the rest of the plant in the ground and it will continue regrowing all season long. I'm given to understand that if you harvest off the same plant more than three times or so that it will start to get bitter, but we haven't had that issue yet.
- While space is advantageous, not much is necessary to yield a decent crop of summer produce and herbs if you plan wisely.
- Don't forget the scapes of your garlic! Fun edible treats can be made with those too.
