So I sat down and made a list, to add to my million other lists in a pile on top of the piano. This time I made a list of all the things I regularly grow in my garden. Then I broke it down and figured out exactly how much each plant was saving me by comparing it to how much it costs at the produce stands around here. One … at … a … time … It took forever!

But it was SO worth it because now I know what each plant saves me, each and every year. Now I know what to fill the extra spaces in my garden with. Now I know what veggies I might want to take a year off from growing and replace with a more profitable one. And if I am ever tight on space, I know exactly which vegetable will give me the best return. Man I love knowing things like this!
