Final Family of 4 Garden Harvest Report

Since we were cleaning out the garden today, we picked everything remaining that could reasonably be picked.

It was quite the motley assortment of over-ripe cantaloupe and under-ripe tomatoes. Oh yeah, and about a gazillion peppers. (Of course!)

We also marked the final harvest from the Family of 4 Garden this year. Not knowing how we’re going to plan things next year, it may be the last Family of 4 Garden report ever. (I kind of doubt it, but it’s always a possibility.)

Family of 4 Garden Harvest Report

3 bell peppers @ $1.25/each = $3.75

1.5 lbs hot peppers @ $2.50/lb = $3.75

2.5 bunches of  Swiss Chard @ $2.99/bunch = $7.48

3.875 lbs ripe tomatoes @ $2.00/lb = $7.75

3.75 lbs green tomatoes @ $1.00/lb = $3.75

Weekly Total: $26.48

Year End Total: $244.19

To exemplify what kind of a year it has been, this is the highest weekly total we’ve had all season except for May 10th, when we had spinach, radishes, and almost 4 pounds of lettuce. It’s also slightly higher than last year at this time, and we kind of quit keeping track last year at this time. Just think what a great year it could have been if the tomatoes had been more cooperative for the majority of the summer!
