So far this year I have spent a whopping $484.46 on seeds, soil, Tagro, and garden tools. My original goal was to keep my expenses under $600 and to try to earn back my “seed money” via selling extra vegetables at the end of our driveway.
But giving away my beloved vegetables and donating them has been really fun too, and even though in a way it is costing me money, I’m not going to stop doing it. So hopefully, somehow, I’ll be able to find a happy medium and still be able to recoup my expenses.
On one recent afternoon the kids set up shop. The picture you see above is what was left over at the end of the afternoon right before they hauled everything back in.
Rather than offering bunches of vegetables for a higher price, the kids decided to price the vegetables at $1/5 items. I’m not really sure what their logic was, but it seems to be working.
So far, they have collected $23, which I think is pretty good considering the selection is minimal right now. But hopefully, as the season progresses, we will be able to re-coup a little more money.
And if not, who cares, gardening is still about the coolest hobby out there.
Peace Out Girl Scouts, I’m off to cause some trouble.
