Everyone must live on a tight budget in our current economy and that is why it is important to find the right items for the right price when shopping for your home or yard.
Now is the time to look for spring décor and plants for your yard and garden.
Plan your garden according to the size of your family, the space you have available, and the type of garden you would like to grow. Fresh fruit is a wonderful way to decrease the cost of your food bill and serve tasty treats every day.
Make your house your home
If your space is limited to a small yard, consider investing in a couple of fruit trees or berry bushes. With two apple trees you can provide your family with fresh fruit and fruit dishes for years.
Check the age of the tree you purchase and when it will begin to produce. Most apple trees purchased on the open market will begin to produce wonderful fruit two to five years after planting. Each year it will produce more if you take good care of it and provide enough water and sunshine.
If you love berries, then a couple of blackberry or raspberry bushes are perfect for limited space. Invest in one to three bushes and see a beginning crop the first year. Read the instruction on planting and care for healthy fruit and a good crop.
They taste wonderful fresh or served with ice cream. Berries can be pressed into juice, cooked into a syrup, used in cobblers, and so many other recipes the whole family will love. It is important to shop wisely and invest in good plants now for great food when times are tough.
Not only can you plant berries, fruit trees and shrubs; there are other ways to adorn your home. Think about home accents, furniture, outside patio sets and more.
The inside of your home makes it unique. Decorate it with pictures, fun and comfortable furniture and accents.
Pets are part of your home too. Don't forget to take care of your dog, cat, goldfish or what have you. Find pet vitamins and toys with online pet stores.
