I spent $160 putting in the garden this year. That was for the purchase of my heirloom seeds, seedling trays, potting soil, and plants for the seedlings I accidentally killed while trying to get them some sun (left the tomatoes out overnight when the temp dipped to 38 degrees...oops!)
We are just starting into full swing gardening season as the tomatoes are not yet ripe (there will be lots of those) and the main crops I have harvested are cucumbers, green beans, zucchini, squash, tomatillos, and some peppers. I would say I am not even at the halfway point of harvesting yet and so far I have gotten 90.2 pounds of organic produce!!! This is all off our 40 x 15 garden that is surrounded by 10 round raised beds made from truck tires. I cannot imagine how much that would have cost to purchase at retail prices, can't wait to get a final total at the end of the growing season!
