I am a girl, I have a garden, and a serious frugal streak. Although I have less space to garden than ever I am striving to grow what I can, preserve what I need to and find other sources of produce (as much local and organic as my budget can sustain) to fill in the gaps and round out the pantry with pickles, jams and other goodies.

I hope to be able to share my struggles and triumphs with others so they can follow the recipes I share and be inspired to take their own steps towards making their own gardens and goodies.
