I've grown up with gardening every year and the canning and preserving that goes along with it. It's just a way of life for me, but one year my husband wanted to know if we REALLY saved money. I took about 1/2 hour and went through the home canned goods on the shelves and the fruits, veggies, & jams in the freezer and then figured how much it would cost me to buy those things in the store. The total was over $700!! Granted, that's only about $60 a month, but that's $60 a month less for our groceries.
Anyone else garden?
