Today in the Family of 4 Garden

We were planning on a busy day in the Family of 4 Garden today, but with the weather projected to be in the 97-103 range for the remainder of the week, I thought that some of the projects could be postponed. For instance, planting the carrots, beets, and bok choy for the fall garden. They need to be planted soon, but hopefully next week will be slightly cooler. They would grow just fine if planted, as long as we keep the soil moist. I didn’t think that was going to happen this week, so next week it is!

We did harvest another couple tomatoes, some peppers, and a whole lot of Swiss Chard HarvestSwiss Chard! Here’s the yield and equivalent prices:

1 lb 2 oz tomatoes @ $2/lb = $2.25

1.25 lbs peppers @$1.59/lb = $1.99

6 bunches of Swiss Chard @ $2/bunch = $12

Total for the Week: $16.24

Year To Date: $161.76
