Anybody got some ideas on what to grow to have food that saves money? Me and my girlfriend are somewhat picky eaters and often eat unhealthy but delicious things so maybe if I have a lot of ideas to look at I can find something I actually will eat.
Most of our yard is shade but a small side area that could be the target garden. Midwest USA lattitude around 42.
Ideas so far:
Fruit (we like): strawberries (we've grown before), blueberries?, raspberries?, blackberries?, rhubarb?, ?
note: '?' may indicate don't know if possible.
Herbs (again we like): basil, chives, parsley, rosemary, oregano, ?
Vegetables: tomato, carrot, potatoes, egg plants, green beans, squash, cucumbers, ?
From what I've read advice is to start small and pick things you like to eat and research measures needed to get a crop. Herbs seem a good target because they are expensive whereas, for example, potatoes are cheap.
