I refuse to do a cost analysis of my garden (or my laying hens)

I really don’t want to know that I’m raising the $47 tomato or the $10 egg.

I have decent luck with tomatoes, squash, and peppers. Some years my garlic does well. I seem to be an onion queen. I’m trying to develop a full asparagus bed but that means keeping the chickens out of the garden in the winter.

I’m a Colorado Master Gardener so I know enough to be dangerous. Luckily one of my volunteer activities is to man the Master Gardener booth at our local farmer’s market. I’ve decided this year I will buy my needed produce (over and above what my garden will produce) from the market. In the past, I’ve bought CSA shares but have found they are just too big for my husband and I.
