Groceries, believe it or not, are the absolute easiest place to cut back your expenses. So I figure, whatever you can grow, especially if it re-seeds itself, you don't have to pay for except when you buy the seeds. My husband raises a great big garden because that's what he loves to do. We also have fruit trees and berries.
A small garden space does not mean you can't have a nice yield if you employ a few techniques to intensify your gardening. This is a guide about six ways to get big yields from a small garden.
If you are an organic eater like I am, then growing a garden should be in your life style, if you have the time and the ability. I just read a great book called Food Rules, by Michael Pollan. In the book, there is a great fact that says just investing $70.00 in to a garden can bring you a $600.00 yield in produce. What a return on your investment, and having not only organic food but also local, how great is that! What you do not eat, you can freeze or can for later use. You could use the $600.00 in savings to go on a vacation.
