Welcome to the Frugal Southern Mom!
Come here for gardening tips, southern recipes and some daily freebies!

I think I have spring fever. My husband had my garden cleared of all weeds as a Valentine's Day gift! It looks great!
My garden consist of perennials, annuals and herbs. Now I can't wait till all the seed catalogues come in. We have 3 acres, part of it is my flower garden, part will be veggies and a great deal of it is grass!
Again Welcome to my blog. I am new at this blog thing, so any ideas and tips you would like to share with me would be great. I am looking forward to swapping ideas and maybe seeds with other gardening folks.

In the mean time please enjoy your southern recipe for the day.

My daughter loves this recipe this is always a sure way to keep my college daughter home, for at least a little while!

Indoor Projects

Of course planting seeds indoors can save you money, plus its fun for kids to watch something they planted grow.
Remember to start seeds at least 8-10 weeks before its time to plant outdoors, depending on what area of the country you live in. Egg crates are good to start plants in, just make sure you keep the soil moist like a cake.
Most of the time you can find inexpensive seeds at dollar stores or maybe a friend or family member has seeds dried from last year's garden they will share with you.
Here are some plants that are easy to start by seed indoors.

Annuals : Begonia, Black-eyed Susan, Impatients, Marigold, Petunia, Salvia.

Veggies : Peppers, Squash, Tomato.

Herbs: Basil , Dill, Coriander, Sage.

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fu…
