My Internal Dialogue
The converstaion went something like this " I am now working hard at growing my own Fruit and Veg organically so I really need a brand spanking new watering can, as my seedlings are too little for a high pressured hose. " But do I really? Have I checked to find my old watering can. ? Can I turn down the pressure on my hose ? Would I rather have another no spend day or a watering can ?
This conversation went on long enough for me to drive home without buying one and you guessed it as soon as I drove into my Garage I spied my old green plastic watering can with the leaky spout, this was definitely a want against need dilemma and my frugal self won this round.
I have been making the most of my local library lately, and using the knowledge I get from the gardening and cooking vegetarian books to plan my garden, I have dug over and fertilised an area for my herb bed and an area for growing vegetables .
I already grow Bananas, Apple Guava and Paw Paw trees and have bought dwarf citrus trees which I can grow in pots, I have the tops off of 2 Pineapples rooting just now and as soon as they have a good root system going I will put them in my garden.
Can't wait to cultivate and eat my crops.
Paid off some bills today and put some money into savings, I really don't have very much cash left to save with, but I need to feel as if I have more control than I really have over my debts and savings. It is going to take me until the end of April to get to the point of being able to start saving in earnest, can't wait...
