Family of 4 Garden – We break $200!

We are getting smothered in an avalanche of peppers, especially hot peppers. There are also a good number of green tomatoes coming on now. I hope they have time to ripen!

This is a sampling of all the different peppers we’ve got right now. Granted, they aren’t all from the Family of 4 Garden. They were so pretty that I just had to share this picture.

Family of 4 Harvest Report

0.25 lb okra @ $4.00/lb = $1.00

15 bell peppers @ $1.25/each = $18.75

0.41 lb hot peppers (cayenne) @ $2.50/lb = $1.03

0.31 lb Anaheim peppers @ $2.50/lb = $0.78

0.2 lb tomatoes @ $2.00/lb = $0.40

Weekly Total: $21.95

Year to Date: $210.46

With all these peppers, just think where our total would have been without such an obnoxious summer? All those tomatoes that we didn’t get….cantaloupe, squash, cucumbers…we probably would be about $75-$90 higher, at least. Then we would be expecting as much as another $100 from fall vegetables and greens. It could have been a banner year!
