Family Deals & Freebies, and Finally a Tomato!
This year I only bought two garden plants - one tomato and one pepper. Grand total $5
This week my first tomato ripened on the vine. Hubby and I shared it with dinner and it was scrumpious. There are at least 3 more tomatoes hatching (ok so I am not a gardener) and one small pepper on the vine. There must be some kind of internal clock that as soon as you turn middle aged you have a need to garden (kind of like the having kids clock but much cheaper).
I also have at least one pea sprouting although there may be a fight over who gets to eat it: the gardener (me), hubby (who loves peas) or Chewy the hamster (our fresh pea loving fuzz ball).
Freebies this week include travel size Sensodyne and Dove conditioner.
And finally, a nice sunset shot view off the back balcony of our house.
Did I mention I have already exceeded our grocery budget this month? Darn yummy barbequed meat and cherries.
