I agree…in addition growing a garden can decrease overall budget. We get our years supply of tomatoes for ‘free’ as well as cucumbers, potatoes, broccoli, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and others. Where we do spend money is to purchase raw goat’s milk which incidently is about the same price right now as gallon of processed cow’s milk. Anyone with 10 minutes a day and two dedicated Saturday’s a year can process enough food to make a difference. Just some thoughts.
