BUT IF YOU DO IT YOURSELF, IT PAYS.
YOU CAN SAVE ANYWHERE FROM $25 DOLLARS TO $2 THOUSAND BY PLANTING YOUR OWN GARDEN.
SURE, YOU'VE GOT THE COST OF PLANTS, BUT A TYPICAL PLANT AVERAGES TWO DOLLARS.
THAT'S LESS THAN A COUPLE OF PIECES OF FRUIT OR VEGETABLES AT THE STORE-----
AND THAT PLANT WILL KEEP PRODUCING FOOD AS LONG AS YOU WATER IT.
Tara Biller / Greenproof Your Home It ends up becoming like free food and a lot of peoplel are intimidated or they feel like they don't have the space and a lot of people don't have the space, but there are other things you do on a patio with pots or on your balcony or things like that.

POTATOES AT $211 DOLLARS....
AND ZUCCHINI AND STRAWBERRIES MAKE A LOT TOO..... MORE THAN $100 EACH--- OF PRODUCE.
