Finally started a garden this year, and with minimum expense it should yield quite a harvest.
I spent money on seeds which are about a dollar a bag (some less) and some of them made it to planting (don't have quite the green thumb I had hoped and also found out I started some to early and some should have been started outside that I started inside, but I'll know for next year at least:)
Anyway, I bought eggplant, peppers, cucumbers and zucchini plants at $1.99 a flat at the local garden center. I already have four eggplants almost ready to pick and my zucchinis and cucumbers are starting as well.
My grandfather gave me three tomato plants which have grown quite tall and now have 36 tomatoes on them!
Gardens may be a bit of work but it's worth it, especially for the savings. An added bonus is that my kids are more excited to eat veggies out of our own garden. My pickiest eater actually tried raw green beans and my oldest ate them as a snack with ranch dip!
Next year my goal is to have an organic garden like my friend at A Little Greener Everyday, I've already started my compost!
Anyone else try a garden this year? How's it going?
