With all the controversy over whether it dos actually save you money to grow your own. I have decided to undertake an experiment to see if indeed it does. Up until now I have not included labor and am not certain if I will although this would perhaps give a more accurate reading.
Of course there is more to having an allotment then saving money. Having tasty veg and fruit is one, exercise another and a friendly place to spend time still another, yet it is an important consideration.
I think also that although I am not a complete beginner where gardening is concerned I am new to proper fruit and veg produce growing and new to allotments. So it is a fairer example for newcomers to the allotment and garden than say someone who has been doing it for years. Also I will note my triumphs and failures and learning so others can learn from it.
