GARDENING EXPENSE, FRIDAY FUNNY

OK, I think it goes without saying, this is SO true.

Not sure if we should laugh or cry, ha.  But I cracked up when I saw it,
and thought I'd share with you for a laugh before the weekend, as a lot of us head out to our yards to grow those veggies.  Nothing beats the taste of homegrown, that's for sure.  Hmm...maybe we just don't keep our receipts?

Enjoy!

  1. So true! Or at least partially - you do start to save money eventually after few years when you don't have to buy any more seeds, soil and have all supplies but the first investment can really ding your walet!

    1. That's what I'm finding right now, the hard way. Every time I go roam around the garden center or hardware store, I see it add up quick.

    2. It's easy to end up with lots of seeds. I love the idea of trading. I need to find some people who want to trade....once i have some new varieties worth trading, ha.

  3. I learned along time ago that creative accounting is the only way when it comes to gardening...or farming for that matter. Certain things are best NOT accounted for.

    1. Too funny!!! Creative accounting is a perfect solution. And you can't go to jail for your own accounting mismanagement, right?

    1. It's easy to laugh at but you're so right, in the long run, it all comes our ahead doesn't it? Better food, better health, more peaceful life...

  5. I keep track of all my garden expenses, harvest weights and value on an Excel spreadsheet. My garden was $2,000. in the GREEN last year and it was a bad gardening year. That is not counting what my dried herbs and seasonings are worth. Buying local organic food is expensive.

  6. It makes me crazy how expensive gardening can be! My last post is about buying potting soil for $1.28! It balances out all the bucks I spend on plants!
