Who is planting more this year to save money!

4 posts in this topic

I have always loved gardening, well vegetable gardening, because I like to eat. Well now since food is getting more and more expensive, I have noticed more and more people looking at planting a garden. I have just added a new 10-x 25 plot in my garden, I already plant a 50 x 30ft area, and I am pickin up more apple trees for my orchard. I plant everything, but where I see the largest savings is in peppers and tomotoes. To buy a few fresh peppers it really adds up(4-8 dollars for a few red, yellow peppers). Last winter I used frozen peppers from my garden, that I had blanched and smoked on the grill for chili, adn they tasted great. And tomatoes, don't get me started...

So who else is either expanding the garden or looking at gardening to save money?

What other plants save the most money? I bet sweet corn might be a good one to blanch this fall....

Between hunting and gardening, I better buy another freezer.....

I am basicly planting a garden for chili and salsas. It gets very expensive to make a double batch of chili every few weeks or so.

People should look at the gas costs when mowing your acre sized lawns. I am all about alternative lawns and increased native plants. People should look at converting or increasing planting bed size to reduce their maintained/mowable acreage. This saves money on gas, wear and tear on the mower and many other cost savings, plus you spend less time mowing.

I kinda like mowing. I can enjoy a cool beverage while doing it!

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
