Anything besides the seeds

extra compost and water could be considered long term investments spread out over ? years, like deer fencing , hardware cloth etc… we do a type of lasagna gardening too, the Back to Eden method, we can get a truck load of mulch that is fairly decomposed already from the landfill for 20.00 a pick up load full. so for us, even at 100.00 for mulch ( yes, composting ourselves since we have woods is on the list for this year), and since I have the time it is worth the expense given the price of organic non gmo foods we can produce, not to mention the by products for the chickens…
That being said, there are somethings we are choosing not to grow because of the price… sweet potatoes are an easy to grow crop in our area, and in the fall we are able to glean from large farms or buy for 5 cents a lb locally… same with collards..and the farm land that butts end to our property is a large hot pepper tomatillo farm… they are generous with the neighbors…
So, tomatoes because we eat tons of sauces, salsas, ketchup, bbq sauce etc… green beans, peas, cucumbers,herbs…

We also live in peanut and cantaloupe country.. those will not go in because the prices re so low its ridiculous for us to grow them…
