Cabbage, Cabbage, and More to Come

As you might have guessed from the title, we harvested several heads of cabbage today from the Family of 4 Garden.

The cabbage probably could have lasted in the garden for a little longer – no, you wouldn’t normally harvest and eat 4 heads of cabbage all in the same week. But, we are planning to plant some okra and other veggies in that area, so it was getting to be time to pull the cabbage and move on.

Family of 4 Harvest

10.25 lbs of cabbage @ $0.75/lb = $7.69

0.75 lbs. of sugar snap peas (from last week) @ $7.00/lb = $5.25

Weekly Total: $12.94

Year to Date: $117.94

We’re having a bunch of kids from McConnell AFB here for a Garden Day Camp on Thursday, and we’re planning to pull onions and dig potatoes from the Family of 4 Garden with those kids. I’ll try to get pictures and harvest weights, but it might be my best estimate!
