Zany, the main cost of saffron comes from the fact that it can't be harvested mechanically. In the home garden, taking tweezers to each flower doesn't seem too inconvenient, but in a commercial operation, it means very high labor costs.

I don't grow much for looks, but I really do love seeing the little saffron crocuses this time of year, when most flowers have finished blooming.
