The more time I spend in the kitchen, the more I realize that many of the old boxes of processed food I used to use can be easily made from scratch, like this homemade bisquick.
You see, for a long time, Bisquick was a staple in our house. From biscuits to pancakes to coating fried chicken – it all started with that yellow box and it was on our Costco must-have list.
Of course, those were the days when I didn’t pay any attention to the list of ingredients and thought cooking from scratch meant opening a box and “just adding eggs + water.”
As you consider your garden this year and start to make garden plans for what you want to harvest, take a cue from the Iroquois Indians and their method for companion gardening.
They planted “the three sisters,” corn, beans and squash. The corn provided something for the beans to climb, the beans provided nitrogen for the corn and the squash spread between the rows providing ground cover and weed control.
Companion gardening is nothing new, and it’s an effective method to use if you’re gardening to save money.
