Link to a new post by Brandy...

Brandy did a great guest post last week called "Five Ways to Get More From Your Garden".

Brandy has taught me a lot about the importance of these principles.

I have now developed a habit of trying to set a little $$ aside, here and there, just to buy little "extras" for my garden. Recently, I had saved up $20. I went to Walmart and was able to buy 13 40lb bags of Organic Humus and Manure. This will be used as I begin to pull up different veggies that have run their course, and I begin to till and prepare the soil for a fall garden. It really does help!

I also love Brandy's tip about growing "up"! Its a great tip for frugality and for space! I put this into practice with my grapevines. They run on the chain link fence. I also heard that organic gardeners suggest this with things like cucumbers (as you see in Brandy's pic) because it helps with pest control. ..If you live in the country, I showed you my silly frugal tip here for a free trellis to run cukes. :-)

Be sure to check out ALL of her tips for getting more out of YOUR garden!!
