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.

From the Garden Journal


. . .it’s raining again, and has been raining every day for the last week.  We can’t seem to get a break long enough to plant in the gardens.  Even if it stops, the ground is too wet.

. . . our first potatoes are up






. . . our buttercrunch lettuce is up


. . .the heirloom lettuce is up


. . .the heirloom peas are up and a few spinach plants


. . .the solar bird house has not yet been visited by birds. 

The inside actually lights up at night, after a full day of charging in the sun.  I’m not sure the birds will enjoy a night light.
