I spent money on the garden last week. I bought some galvanized wire to make small hoops for my chard. It added $14.22 to my tally. Now I'm at -451.74 for the year. The number always seems so huge every year. But $321 of that number are amortized costs. $180 of which will be gone by the end of the year. And another 100 in two years. The cost of putting a garden together is so expensive. And though I amortized the cost of things over their expected life, the reality is that I was conservative in my estimates. So at some point my costs will start to drop. But even with the huge upfront costs, I do pull a lot of vegetables out of my garden. And I'm always way in the black by the end of the year.
