Gardening and Bills

January 10th, 2007 at 03:58 am

Guess what?! DH told me that his paycheck this week will be almost double what it normally is! Apparently he hit some threshold that he gets rewarded for, so I have some extra money coming my way!! I think we're going to put it on one of the credit cards; it should be enough to completely pay it off.

I paid our bills last night. It's interesting to see that by STICKING TO MY BUDGET, I'm not coming up short when it's time to pay the bills. I'm following my debt snowball plan, threw some in savings, and still have enough to buy groceries! It feels good not to worry!

I want to plant some veggies now that I have my own backyard. I am willing to listen to any and all advice! I want to grow:

Onions
Spinach
Tomatoes
Carrots
Rosemary
Basil
Garlic
Cilantro

I want to try corn, beans, and potatoes, but I don't want to be too ambitious. Baby steps, right?

    Good for you, I love gardening too, don't have enough room where we are right now, but someday!

    Beans are easy, go for it; you get a lot of produce for the space allotted.

    I grew potatoes 1 year and did great! There's nothing more exciting than getting down on all fours and searching through the dirt with one's hands for those taters you've waited so long for. Just note that unlike some other crops, the potatoes have to grow all season long.
