Well I gotta tell you that working 7 days a week most days and gardening don’t quite mix. I haven’t been into the vege garden for weeks now and it’s just a big hot mess. I went out there today because it annoys me that I put so much time, effort and money into getting the garden prepped and growing, to have it looking like it does now..
BUT….there is a silver lining to this mess…..
I GOT A HARVEST!! Can you even believe that these amazing veges were growing in amongst all those choking weeds! I even got some broccolini that I though had all gone to seed! The onions are from last year which is quite amazing, I didn’t realise they take so long to actually grow!
Makes me wonder if they would in fact grow better if we left them alone? Then again who wants a garden full of weeds?
My husband and I have decided that we are going to stop being terrible stewards of our money, buying take away every chance we get, eating so much junk food, way too much coke and not making food fro scratch. This has caused a huge amount of financial waste and it’s time we got serious about eating real food and stop wasting so much money that can be used for other things.
Today is Sunday, typically we would be in the car driving around, stopping for fast food and spending at least $50 every time we stop. I have a lot of zucchini in the house so instead of going out today, wasting fuel and food money, we have decided to stay home (saving fuel) and I have been baking to use some of the zucchini that needs to be eaten. I am so proud of us, normally we would duck into town for a pie and chocolate milk, but by me cooking lunch we have saved money and calories and stopped the waste of 2 zucchinis (many more in the garden). I have also made a zucchini bread and some peanut bisciuts but will post on them separately.
I found this recipe on The Whoot and it’s that good I have to share it with you guys! I forgot to take photos of my outcome and we have now eaten it lol!
It was super quick to make and we had it for lunch! So much better than bought food and way better for us!
