This circular examines 25 Florida farmers' garden records or budgets, and shows that, on average, and excluding family labor costs, farmers save $575 per garden by growing their own.  Using individual farmers' gardening plans and budgets, we also compare an expensive garden, in which the farmer over'fertilizes and over-invests in garden equipment, to a relatively cheap, low-input garden.
