It's worth it.
Awhile back we had a discussion about whether or not gardening was worth doing financially. (Some of us would garden even if it weren't, for the flavor.) So last night I'm in WM to pick up carrots, (one of the few items in the produce section I buy, because I have never successfully grown them) when my eye was drawn to a pkg of Sugar Snap Peas in a small plastic bag. The sign said $2.50 so I picked up the bag. It was 8 oz. That's $5.00 a pound. I didn't weigh the proceeds of my 50 ft row this year, but last year I picked 40 pounds--that made it to the house. Probably ate 5 pounds in the garden. So yes, it's worth it.
