To me a garden the cost isn't measurable because I find that it uplifts my spirits. Finding things that need to be picked makes my heart sing. The summer I am happiest because of all the veggies coming from the garden.
I have a hard time shaking my Winter Blues, well until I put the garden in. The past couple years my Blues were deep, almost depression because of stress at work, I was over a month late putting in my garden, although the weather was good I just didn't feel good, I just wanted to hide in my house. But as soon as stuff started popping out of the ground I started to feel better.
Actually the stress this year was so bad that I almost pulled out my garden when the person causing me that stress asked me if I was gardening this year and how it was doing. Thankfully that person has been fired, now I hope with the change in boss's that I can start to enjoy life again, and enjoy my garden. I have actually been debating on getting house plants again.
