Frugal Gardening: Pick Your Own Farms (link-up)

Best Blogger Tips
 Look how cute my little tomato plants are!! Above are 2 that are doing very well and my girls can not wait to start eating some FREE tomatoes!! Below are my raspberries!! All of those from one little plant last year, THANKS BECKY!!!


If you are looking for a way to save some money with out having the care of your own garden, you can always visit your local Farm. Visit PickYourOwn and search for a local farm in your area where you can tour their farm, pick your own flowers, veggies or fruit all for a very reasonable price! We live near Cincinnati and I found 3 that are within driving distance for us to visit and pick our own!

The PickYourOwn site offers a ton of information! Below I included a farm in my area- they tell you exact location, what they have to offer and any visitor information you may need to stop by! They also have reviews from readers so you can see what others have to say about a local farm. Some farms offer a lot of options or they may specialize in just one produce like the farm below!

Dear Brianne,
Your plants are off to a good start! I've never grown any fruit, so please keep us posted on the progress of your raspberries. I love them!
I'll plant tomatoes again this year, only to have the chipmunks eat them I guess. Oh well ...

I miss having local farms where we could pick produce. Where we live now , there just isn't a farm nearby. :-( But we're doing our best to grow what we eat to make up for it! Thanks for sharing!
