Starting a garden can save you money, but did you know that some plants are just not worth growing? Some veggies simply take too much space and their yield can be disappointing. I’m sharing a list of profitable garden plants you should be sowing in your garden to reduce your grocery bill.
Note that if your fruits and veggies end up in the compost, you’re just wasting money! For the plants to be profitable they must be consumed. Here’s what made the list…
|Green Salad Mix||$ 17.55|
|Tomato, Cherry, small & medium||$ 15.57|
|Tomato, large||$ 9.50|
|Squash, Winter||$ 8.40|
I stumbled across this lists on The Cheap Vegetable Gardener. Check out the complete list to find out what the least profitable plants are. One of my favorites, made the list — beets!
Do the math to figure out what’s worth growing in your garden. You’ll have to do a little research to determine the yields of various plants per square foot. You also want to find out the value (organic supermarket prices USD) of the yielded produce at harvest.
As a rule of thumb, I’ve found leafy green veggies and herbs will produce more per square foot. These are followed by vine plants that grow vertically. The worst producers tend to be root plants — these take up so much space.
Did your favorite veggies make the profitable or nonprofitable list? I’d love to know what you’re growing this season.
