Guess what I'm going to be doing today.
Yep you guessed it - putting up okra. How does this relate to being thrifty you ask? Well a couple from our church gave us all this (plus a little more we shared with MIL) for free - all we had to do was pick it. Sunday they gave us a 5 gallon bucket full. This is the second batch they've gave us. Sunday's batch gave us 10 quart bags full.
They also gave us a bag of yellow squash and a bag of cucumbers. Gotta love generous friends. We can eat healthy this winter.
