Roundup: Gardening is Fun & Sustainable
Posted By Jim On 06/13/2010 @ 12:41 pm In Personal Finance | 13 Comments
We started gardening  a few years ago because we thought it would be fun. We don’t have that much ground space living in a townhouse so our stuff has always been in buckets or planters (one of these days we’ll do square foot gardening ). Over the years we’ve learned what has grown well (any spice, tomatoes, strawberries, red peppers, hot peppers of almost any type) and what hasn’t (eggplant, though that’s mostly our fault).
One thing we didn’t really take into consideration was plant selection based on profitability . I suppose we did it intuitively, after seeing how expensive fresh herbs and spices are at the grocery store, because we are growing chives and dill (and oregano and basil and thyme). This year, we’ll be sure to dry our fresh herbs for later.
Have a great weekend!
