Something happened to half or more of my reply. Here’s what I had
tried to post:
There is the difference. We were not growing for only one
person. Plus, most people on this list would not be growing for only
one person. Now if I was just doing tomatoes and peppers in
containers like I was one year, I can see it being only 10 minutes a
day. When I think “garden”, it’s more than a few of each
plant. It’s enough to do 2 canners of beans one day, 6 canners of
tomatoes another, squash going in the freezer, jelly being made,
peaches being canned, then again, we had about an acre in plants
producing food product once you included the fruit trees and the
grape vines. We had watermelon and cantaloupe vines, too. We were
making food to put up for a full year, too, not just “in season”.
