Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that the past few weeks have been a little crazy with a LOT of travel.  This was my first full week to just be home in almost a month, and let me tell you, I have enjoyed every second!  My husband and I planted our fall garden, which ended up being a bigger task than we anticipated when we accidentally hit our main irrigation pipe while preparing the soil.  That one little OOPS set us back about 8 hours of work, but in the end it gave us an excuse to put in an extra hose spigot right in the garden, which hopefully will make things easier in the future! We are determined that after four previous attempts, THIS will be our year to finally grow something! 🙂

Inside the house, we have also been busy working tackling our Clutter Free Challenge and working our way through each area of our home.  If you haven’t joined, it’s not too late–we would LOVE to have you join in the fun!  If you are blogging your way through the challenge you will be able to link up each day, and you can share photos of your progress on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook using hashtag #LWSLClutterFree.

    I would love to hear more about your irrigation system for your garden. My hubs and I are planning on rigging up a system to draw water from our creek…but I have my doubts that it will work efficiently. Loving your clutter free challenge and can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s challenge is!

    We also love the spigot we added right at the garden, with a little cement pad under it. We mainly use it for the ‘Scarecrow’, which squirts water at deer with a movement sensor. I also grow food in all the flower beds and have most of our lettuce and herbs in pots at the back porch to be sure only we eat it! Thanks for the linky!

  5. Thanks so much for hosting! Have a wonderful week.

    Hi Ruth. We took the time to put a sprinkler system in our garden, and it’s been so nice to have. We’ve had it over five years now. Blessings on your family and garden! Thanks for hosting!
