Look at Those Lima Beans Grow!

My husband and I really like lima beans, the big fat green ones, but growing them in our area has been a non-event.  It's not that we haven't tried, we have many times, using different methods all to no avail.  (It's our sandy soil!)

This year however, I got a bright idea to try growing them in our rectangle shaped raised bed.  It's about 4 feet wide and about 8 feet long.  I/we decided to plant Kings lima beans, which is a heirloom variety, with the understanding that they would need something to run up on as they are a 'running' bean.

Here's what I/we decided to do …


Plant the seeds then add tomato cages for them to run up … (Our tomato cages are really tall and sturdy … hubby made them out of concrete re-enforcing wire.)



Here's how they look today, I do believe we are finally going to be able to grow lima beans!!!

$5 or Less Pantry Stocking Challenge: 6/18/2018

In my last stocking up post I shared that I had $61.14 to carry over to this week, add this week's allotment of $5 to it and it gives me $66.14.

My husband found an outstanding deal on chicken (even though he's not a big fan of chicken) and stocked-up …


Each package had a $1.50 off coupon which made them less than a $1/package.  In fact, my husband paid $12 and some cents for all of this chicken … 21 packages!  I was so proud of him … he loves to hunt down a good bargain just as much as I do!   We're all set for chicken for awhile thanks to his keen and watchful deal finding eye!

The total in our stocking-up fund was $66.14, we spent $12 leaving us with $54.14 which we'll carry over to next week or until we find another good deal!
