Growing vegetables in the home garden and patio containers is more than just fun and healthy. As food prices rise, homegrown produce becomes even more of a bargain. Gardening experts estimate that a $50 investment in vegetable seeds can yield, on average, $1,250 in delicious produce. Even factoring in the cost of purchasing a seed starting system such as the Super Sprouter 726402 Premium Propagation Kit with T5 Light Garden Lamps, soil amendments, garden tools, and more, economists tell us that growing one vegetable plant costs less than $1.50 . . . and can yield many pounds of delectable, nutritious fresh produce over a long season.
