Gardening – Most Bang for Buck

by / Friday, 02 April 2010 / Published in Gardening

Some people are limited on garden space. So, what do you plant? What would have the greatest return on your investment or the most bang for the buck? Based on economic value of pounds produced per square foot, retail value per pound at harvest time, and length of time in the garden, here is my top 12 vegetables in Economic Value:

1. Tomatoes
2. Peppers
3. Cucumbers
4. Beets
5. Green bunching onions
6. Carrots
7. Lettuce
8. Summer Squash
9. Broccoli
10. Peas
11. Swiss Chard
12. Beans (pole or bush)

What have you found to be the best vegetables to plant in terms of Economic Value ?
