It's time to bring the garden in for the winter here in the Mid-Atlantic States. My Watermelon plants sat there all summer and did nothing. NOW of course they want to set fruit lol. Soooo I have decided to bring them in and put them in a big pot in my bedroom and see what happens. Plus I have found this great site called Wintersown. There are seeds you can plant now so the garden gets a head start next year. It is awesome. If you have a garden you should check it out.
Now you may be asking yourself, what does this have to do with making do? Well, I'll tell you.
In these hard times it's easy to fall into the trap of eating unhealthy fattening foods because they are cheaper than the good stuff. But you can take a pot of lettuce and put it on the windowsill and have fresh salad to supplement your diet. You can even bring in the tomatoes :-).I did it with peppers last year and I will probably do it this year too. So try it and eat healthy.
Later I will talk about what to do with those worn out clothes.
Til next time, Keep on the lookout for ways to save by Makin' Do!
