Today’s show is kind of a different type of show. I wanted to talk today a little bit about why I feel it is important to use your money wisely when it comes to purchasing things for your garden. Spending money is not necessarily a bad thing. But I want you to get something out of those purchases and any others you ever make. Every exchange of money is an exchange of life and time and energy. Make sure what you get makes your life better and/or saves you time and energy, otherwise its a waste to some degree. Today’s show can be best summed up by this Thoreau quote: The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
