Home Gardening in the U.S.

One of the blogs I follow linked to this infographic:

I think the most interesting information is that the expected return on investment for an average garden is $530 per year. That’s pretty impressive! Of course, the $70 spent per household on the garden will vary, and does not likely include all the expenses involved in starting a new garden. But $70 for an established garden seems reasonable.
