One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Make it do,

From the Garden Journal, Gratitude Journal and Making Progress

From the Garden Journal. . .

….planted spinach just before the rain arrived.  We also put 3 redbud tree seeds to soak, and hope to get them outside during the rain tomorrow.  We purchased Aunt Harriet's redbud seed pods from Amishland Heirloom Seeds in Reamstown, PA.  I cut the first fresh chives from one of the herb gardens this year.  It complimented our mashed potatoes at dinner.
