This year I plan on tracking all of the money I spend on the garden. I will also weigh all of my harvests and give them a value. Even if it weren't cheaper to grow vegetables, I think I would probably still do it because it is so fun and the veggies taste so much better, but I think it will be fun to see the numbers.
Since this is really my first full year of gardening and I don't have any existing beds other than a 4x4 raised bed that I built last year, the expenses for this year will probably be slightly higher than they would otherwise be.
2010 Expenses So Far:
Total pounds harvested: 0.0
Total spent: $41.90
