‘Recession’ Gardens

CNN has this story today about people turning to gardening in the recession. I don’t know if they coined the term “recession garden,” or if they got it from someone else. I’m not sure I like that term, but I’m all for gardening regardless of the reason behind it!

There is a lot of hype about how much money you can save in food from a small vegetable garden. Part of the goal for our Family of 4 Garden this year is to keep great records of how much we are harvesting and equating the harvest with food costs and savings. I will be very interested to see what the results are!
