Cheaper Vegetables?


I am often told; “It is cheaper to buy fruits and vegetables than to raise them.”  I have nothing to say in reply.  There are many cheap things we can have.  Experience has proved that one of the best things we can have is a garden, either to work in or to visit daily when the season permits.  We have but one life to live here, and to get the cheapest things out of it is a rather poor ambition.
