Family of 4 Update
It’s been awhile since I’ve updated you on the Family of 4 Garden – in part because I’ve been gone so much. I still need to post some pictures from my trip too – maybe for the Friday PhotoEssay. To be completely honest, neither you nor I have missed much. Stupid summer.
Actually, today’s harvest was one of the best we’ve had (except for last week), since mid-July. That’s sad. Really sad. We had a nice handful of the smaller-than-normal Golden Rave Romas, a small ‘Fabulous’ slicer, a purple bell pepper, and a big pile of purple cayenne peppers. Not too shabby! Now…what to do with the cayenne peppers?
In the last few weeks, we have also removed all the squash/cucumbers/cantaloupe and the do-nothing Chocolate Cherry tomato. As discussed last week, we aren’t planting anything for fall.
Here’s the cumulative of what’s been harvested since early August. It’s pretty sad.
1.8 lbs of tomatoes @ $2.00/lb = $3.60
7 bell peppers @ $1.25/each = $8.75
0.25 lb hot peppers @ $2.50/lb = $0.63
1 bunch Swiss Chard @ $2.99/bunch = $2.99
0.20 lb. okra @ $4.00/lb = $0.80
Monthly Total: $16.75
Year to Date: $183.20
For some reason, I suspect that we aren’t going to end up much above $200, although the Swiss Chard will probably kick in here as it cools down and we should still get a good number of peppers.
