Quick Harvest Update

The Family of 4 Harvest was pretty minimal today.

1/4 lb of jalapenos @ $2.50/lb = $0.63

1.2 lbs of tomatoes @ $2.00/lb = $2.40

1 cucumber @ $0.75/each = $0.75

0.25 lb of zucchini @ $1.50/lb = $0.38

Weekly Total = $4.15

Yearly Total = $180.23

We could be harvesting a little bit of Swiss Chard, but I don’t really want to stress it more than necessary in the heat. The cucumbers really aren’t pollinating well in the heat either. The peppers are looking better after their shot of fertilizer last week, but still no new peppers.
