Save Money By Growing Your Own Produce vs. Store Bought
Here is a big encouragement to grow your own fruits and vegetables: it can save you money.
Experts say that one square foot of garden yields about $1.00 worth of produce, so a typical 15 foot by 20 foot garden, or 300 square feet, can yield $300.00 of produce.
The average gardener spends about $70.00 on a 600 square foot garden. If your garden is that large that could be a savings of $530.00 on produce.
For beginners, I advise you to start small.
A four by six foot vegetable garden is an easy and manageable way to begin.
For apartment or condo dwellers, even five or so large pots on a sunny balcony or patio, filled with herbs, tomatoes, zucchinis and strawberries can yield quite a lot.
So get out there and grow veggies and save some bucks.
