This is my favorite video, because I love crunching numbers to see which vegetables are worth it for me to grow. Don’t worry if you don’t like numbers or budgets, I’ll walk you through mine. You definitely don’t want to be that person that grows one $250 tomato when you could have bought that same tomato at the farmers market for $5.

I once grew a head of endive for $5 which wasn’t so cost effective. But then I decided to let it flower, I saved the seeds, an d grew another 50 heads from those seeds. Those heads cost me $0.10 each to grow. Now we’re talking!

What’s the one thing you can do to keep from throwing away your money as a beginning grower?
