Today, I finally finished the first round of planting in my garden.
I told myself I could not leave for my weekend women’s retreat until they were in the ground.
(And yes, my goal for this upcoming weekend is to post my yard sale and Frugal Fashionista finds…from the beach. 🙂
The reason I added the extra stress of planting when I really needed to prepare for the retreat? Because this overhaul of our garden was done two weeks ago, and those little plants have been waiting patiently on my picnic table ever since.
I have a great gardening post coming up…and as you can see, one that incorporates the whole family. They can be such wonderful helpers, and distractors. 🙂

I thought I would pass along this great opportunity that Home Depot is providing for women. I think the sign ups for this one will go quickly. If you’re not sure of your availability, I would save your spot.
The phrase that got me? “Any sized budget.”

One thing I do invest in on our tight budget are perennials. They are a “forever” investment.
There is nothing I love more than seeing those buds pop out of the ground right around this time of the year. I have been adorning my table with Daffodils and Tulips for weeks.Two of the companies that I have ordered from in the last few years, I am highlighting for you. I couldn’t believe when I saw that Gurney’s was offering $20 off of a $40 order because I just received my catalog and that wasn’t an option. I was thrilled to pass on this savings to you.
Since I partnered with them, I want to make sure that you know I will receive a few pennies on the dollars that you spend.
I have also ordered from Michigan Bulb. I think they are both excellent choices, and you can order in quantity for a better value.
Our raspberry bushes were actually mail order and they are finally taking off this year.
I have been nothing but happy with their customer service, and return policies.

I got that catalog in the mail and am happy I didn’t go ahead and order before I saw this.
