The One Dollar Onion

We picked up two large onions at the grocery story yesterday.  They cost $1.50 per pound.  Just one onion cost us $1.00. 

There are 112 onions growing in my garden.  Assuming they grow well and form nice large bulbs, there is a potential $112 worth of onions growing in our garden. 

While there are many benefits to growing your own food (maybe I'll list them in a future blog), this little monetary perk keeps me on track and helps motivate me to rise while it is still cool outside to water and weed the little darlings. 

Speaking of weeds, I spy a few in the picture that need to be pulled.  I'll put that on tomorrow morning's to-do list.
