Gardens for Cheapskates is a review of my fun in the garden.
I started gardening, AS AN ADULT, for fun and therapy. Great way to clear the head= pull some weeds and plant some seeds.
The last thing I wanted to do was invest/spend a bunch of money- otherwise I could see a shrink for $125+ per hour.
I buy used tools( yard sale) , Use tools for multiple tasks and I get as much stuff for free( freecycle or other methods).
I also strive for chemical free. This is safer and also potentially less expensive.
As I kid we lived off the garden well into the next spring so now I am working in that direction.
Composting, Worms, frees stuff keep this inexpensive.
