I know that I can get onions for 39¢ a pound at the grocery store this week. Why would I grow my own?
Reading Family Feasts for $75 a Week by Mary Ostyn, gave me some insight into this. I wonder why I didn’t consider it before. When we grow our own veggies, we are essentially going organic, because we don’t use pesticides. Organic veggies cost more at the store or at farmers’ markets, so if I consider the cost of organic onions, I figure I do pretty well.
I also consider how much I enjoy working outside in my garden. It really makes my day and brings such happiness to me. =
