The Intersection of Time and Money

One of the rules that I have always found to be consistently true, besides the one that the cereal and the milk never come out even at the bottom of the bowl, is that there is an inversely proportional relationship between time and money. Put more simply, if you have plenty of one, you have little of the other. Working means more money, less time. Time off means more time, less money. This rule makes me want to spend my time wisely, so that the things I do give me a good return for my effort.

That's where gardening comes in, because the minimal effort of planting seeds and watering them can produce amazing results...and sometimes, heartbreaking failures. Still, the investment of money and time is low and the results are well worth it.
