Thrifty Thursday – Grow Your Own

To save a bit of money on our weekly food shop we have started an allotment together with my sister in law. You can read all about how this started in my Amateur Allotment Growers post.

Grow your Own

allotment progressWe have really enjoyed it so far and we are just starting to get crops that we can eat!


As we’ve been pretty successful so far on the allotment I’ve also started growing a few bits at home.

The kiddies are really into it and they both take it in turns to water the plants each night before bed. It’s also a great way to get them to try new foods.

We haven’t seen any difference in our weekly food shop bill yet as most of the crops still aren’t quite ready but I’m hoping that will change in the next couple of weeks. It’s also going to help towards my Supermarket Free challenge that I’ve set myself.
