Over the weekend I began to prepare my garden plot for the dry season planting as this is the optimal fortnight to place our seeds and seedlings in the ground.
I harvested 2 of my peanut plants that I had planted from peanuts about 6 months ago. I thought I had very little however I watched a few You Tube clips and discovered a good plant has about 40 peanuts. I was successful after all as I have more then 40 peanuts per plant.
For children and others without peanut allergies this is a fun snack to grow. Easy to maintain, exciting to see the plant being pulled out of the ground and a short growing period.
This Easter long weekend I will be planting tomatoes, cucumbers, winged beans and other edibles that take my fancy. What about you? Tell me where you live, what season you are in and what are you growing and harvesting. Looking forward to hearing about your attempts and successes.
Have a Happy Day,
Stephanie at Frugal Down Under.

- Passionate about eco-frugality. I used to party hard, clubbing my way from pay-packet to pay-packet. Never getting ahead, just getting by. Then came our much wanted baby with no savings in the bank - only an old car. Changes were made to our lifestyle and we didn't turn back. In the past 6yrs we purchased a flat, found employment, lived below our means, built an emergency fund, purchased a reliable car and saw the financial benefits of our frugal lifestyle. Our only debt is our mortgage. Our aim is to manage our cash flow wisely, pay off our home quickly and eventually work for pleasure, not necessity.
