Do you waste money on your garden?
It’s okay. It happens to all of us, including me. I have an expensive cold frame opener sitting on a shelf in my garage. I bought it last fall when I was feeling very gung-ho about extending my gardening season.
But, I don’t actually have a cold frame. I keep thinking I’m going to build one, but I haven’t quite gotten around to it.
Here’s what happens – we get pulled in by a shiny package or a promise of a garden miracle and we buy something we don’t need. Then it sits unused in the garage or garden shed as a reminder of our rash decision.
Sometimes we wonder if our garden is costing us more money than we’re getting out of it.
Here’s what a blog reader asked awhile back:
When I first got started, I assumed that gardening would be a way to save money, but I’m finding that now I have a garden up and running, I’m still spending a lot on seedlings, compost, mulch, etc. What are some ways to save money when gardening?
I hate to see fellow gardeners invest a lot of time, energy and money into their gardens and get less than stellar results. It doesn’t have to be this way; you can have a garden that delivers big results.
There are lots of steps you can take to increase your success and decrease the waste associated with your garden (time, money, energy). But, what are those steps, you ask?
