HOLY SMOKES! I had forgotten tomato’s for some brushetta that I was making. Normally, they just get included with the weekly groceries, so I’m not paying attention to prices on individual items. Today, I noticed the price only because it was all that I bought…$8.78 for 10 small tomato’s!
NOW I know why I like gardening all of a sudden.
My new goal…produce 50% of all our produce within the next year.
Four Raised Beds: Will produce lettuce, spinach, onions, green onions, TOMATO’S :), cucumbers, green peppers, Tree Collards, strawberries.
Under bedroom window: Artichokes and garlic
Containers: Meyer Lemon, Tangelo’s, Grapefruit, Banana, Japanese Pear, Blackberries, Blueberries
Backyard Border: Cherry Tree, Plum Tree, Nectarine, Peach, Pomegranate.
Not bad for having a fairly small lot! If it doesn’t produce something edible…it doesn’t stay! Except for my wife’s roses. 🙂
