Changes in the Family of 4 Garden

Things have changed drastically in the Family of 4 Garden in the last 2 weeks. The cabbage are gone (except one), the potatoes and onions are gone, the peas and lettuce are gone. We have planted seeds for squash, cucumbers, melons, and okra to take their place.

The onions aren’t as big as we’d like to see, but they still look great!

The okra and melons are going to take over this area by the end of the summer, even though they are getting planted later.

Family of 4 Harvest Report:

2 lbs Red Onions @ $1.20/lb =$2.40

2 1/4 lbs Yellow Onions @ $1.20/lb =$2.70

1/4 bunch carrots @ $2.00/bunch = $0.50
