I am now officially a personal finance blogger. Do I have 5,000 subscribers? No. Do I have a 100,000 visitors a month? No.
I reached a bigger miletone- I have a garden.
It seems like many personal finance bloggers are now only getting their finances in order, they’re cultivating their own little productive land.
It’s definitely a learning experience, but I’m really enjoying it. Having fresh herbs and foods from our little garden and our friends’ gardens is a great improvement with our meals.
In case you’re curious about what we have in our spot, here’s the list.
- Icebox Watermelon
- Bell Pepper
Some of the plants are ready yet, so I’m waiting eagerly to have some watermelon.
