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.

Garden Gifts and Bartering

Bartering is not yet a thing of the past.  We barter our garden goodies for services or to borrow tools. 

Yesterday, we bartered a jar of jelly, and a bag of fresh picked green peppers for the help of a family member (moving our new treadmill, again from my wonderful Uncle).

We also gifted another family member with a bag of green peppers, a cucumber, some cayenne peppers, and banana peppers.  

The garden has truly been a blessing.
