Homegrown Produce Ranked by ValuePaperback - 2016
Which veggies should you plant in your garden, the answer really comes down to math. It doesn't matter where you garden, in a community garden plot, in containers, in raised beds or straw bales, or in a Square Foot Garden, deciding which edibles to plant is perhaps the biggest factor in whether or not your garden succeeds. While success means many things to many gardeners, there's no getting around the issue of cost versus payback. Does it make sense to spend $5 and use up three feet of garden space to grow one cabbage when you can buy a beautiful one at the farmers market for $2? The author has been a gardener and engineer for many years and can tell you this, even in the garden, math is your friend. In Square Foot Gardening: High Value Veggies, we've ranked the 59 vegetables that are most common for home growing and concluded which ones give you the most bang for your gardening buck. We looked at a lot of factors and crunched a lot of numbers and the answers all become clear.
