Family of 4 Garden Update

Red Padron PepperIt’s Tuesday, so you know what that means, right? Exactly – the Family of 4 Garden.

Today we harvested 3.25 pounds of tomatoes, 2.75 pounds of peppers, 1 bell peppers (still green), and 1 bunch of Swiss Chard.

3.25 pounds of tomatoes @ $2/lb = $6.50

2.75 pounds of peppers @ $1.59/lb = $4.37

1 green bell pepper @ $1.00 each = $1.00

1 bunch Swiss Chard @ $2.00/bunch = $2.00

Today’s Total: $13.87

Year-to-Date Total: $175.63

There is a beautiful garden spider hanging out on a web in amongst the pepper plants:

We also planted some purple carrots, more Chioggia and Gold beets, and some Bok Choy in the open spaces where the onions, beets, and carrots were planted this spring.
