The true cost of food

September 20, 2009

It is hard to argue with people who think that buying food at the grocery school for pennies a pound is cheaper than growing your own food.

So I am not going to argue with those people – like the woman who had an article in the Washington Post Business Section this morning about how growing your own vegetables is meaningful and satisfying but doesn’t save money.

I think we are thinking about the true cost – she and I – in different ways. How do you think about the true cost of goods and services? If you think those tomatoes in the grocery store at $0.99 per pound are cheaper than mine out of my own garden, consider this.

What are your thoughts?

    Anyway, bright blessings at Thanksgiving,
