What is a garden worth?

In the last two days I have harvested two baskets of beautiful salad greens, handfuls of herbs and edible flowers, and heads of fresh, amazing, organic broccoli.

Organic broccoli is about $3/lb. A bag of salad greens (which these two meals of dinner salad for 5 would have been about four bags) would be about $2.99 each, 2/$5 on sale. Edible flowers and herbs would be about $2 each tiny box. That would be about 2 of those.

Just in the last two days I have made $19 because I turned to my garden instead of the grocery store.

What a beautiful thing! :)
