Family of 4 Garden Harvest

We picked the last of the peppers this week as we pulled out the plants. It was sad to seem them go, but the weather is getting too cold for them to produce much more.  The chard is still going strong, though! The cutting celery, Brussels Sprouts, carrots, and salad greens are also enjoying the cooler weather.

3 lbs assorted peppers @ $1.59/lb = $4.77Oct 6 004

3 bunches Swiss Chard @ $2.00/bunch = $6.00

1 bunch Cutting Celery @ $2.00/bunch = $2.00

1 bunch basil @ $3.00/pkg = $3.00

Weekly Total = $15.77

Yearly Total = $307.87

That officially puts us in the black for the year, covering all the start-up expenses and regular yearly expenses!
