Does Gardening Save You Money
It is a question I would love to discuss. I feel like for many, having a garden to grow some of your own food is an oversold luxury pushed out there as an easy answer for the poor. On the other hand, if you do it correctly, and budget wisely, having a garden will save you money while providing tasty and nutritious additions to your food supply.
I feel that it is the over-emphasis on buying pre-started seedlings, and the idea you can just buy your soil in a few bags and grow from that, which really runs the price up. Learning to start from seeds saves so much money, and learning to amend your soil with compost does as well.
