Would you like to grow your own vegetables but not exactly sure which ones are the most cost-effective to grow?

If you would like to grow some vegetables to try to save money, or if you only have a small space for your veggies then you will love these tips. I have experimented with a bunch of different vegetable crops over the years and put together a list of the ones that are the easiest to grow and that will save you the most money.

I send out emails from time to time (when I am not busy playing in the dirt) about the things you should – and shouldn’t – do to have a successful vegetable garden.

Me and my dog, Kahuna, His favorite vegetables are carrots and peas.

My husband and I are saving thousand of dollars every year by growing our own vegetables in our garden. We learn something new every year and this website is made to share our tips with other people that would like to grow some of their own food.

The benefits of growing some of your own vegetables are endless. Not only will you save a lot of money by growing your own vegetables, but it is a great feeling to eat something that you know is organic and not some crazy Frankenstein crop that has been designed in a lab and is growing in Round-Up.

Most of the vegetables we purchase at the supermarket have been transported from afar and can be weeks old. The majority of the nutrients are long gone and the produce taste like cardboard.

Vegetables and fruit are getting more and more expensive, so now is the time to turn that lawn of yours into your very own vegetable market where everything is free. If my husband and I could do it, so can you.

Wouldn’t it be nice to pick these ingredients in your backyard…


And turn them into this?


Granted, if you are starting from fresh, it will cost a little bit of money to get started. However, once everything is set up, the cost is minimal and the rewards are huge. The size of your family and how many veggies you eat determine exactly how much money you can save every year. We do a lot of juicing, so we are saving thousands of dollars by growing some carefully selected greens. This year we will be looking into freezing more veggies and get into canning and save even more money than we have in the past.

There is an incredible sense of accomplishment when you grow your own vegetables. Veggies out of your own vegetable garden don’t get any fresher, tastier or more satisfying. The whole family can get involved in this rewarding hobby and kids will learn where food comes from and appreciate nature even more.

Our approach to vegetable gardening is completely different than the norm. We are doing it the lazy way with zero digging, so no back breaking weekends turning the soil.

The way we grow our vegetables is to emulate natural ecosystems. Rain forests seem to do just fine without human interference, so we have applied the same principles to our vegetable garden and we are producing more vegetables than ever!

By mimicking nature the amount of hours we have to spend maintaining the vegetable garden are minimal and our crop is much more bountiful than in previous years where we followed the rules. What can I say? We’re such rebels.
