Family of 4 Garden Harvest Report

Today was an exciting day in the Family of 4 Garden! We actually had some tomatoes to harvest!  They turned out to be not beautiful – one with a crack and one with a touch of blossom end rot (shock!). But they were still tomatoes. The cucumbers and zucchini are still producing quite well, although we ended up pulling out the zucchini due to powdery mildew. The cucumbers are slowing down quite a bit, probably because they are coated in aphids. I’ll post more about these two occurrences tomorrow or Thursday.

Today’s Harvest:

4.5 lbs of cucumbers @ $1.00/lb = $4.50

2.25 lbs of zucchini @ $1.50/lb = $3.38

0.56 lbs of tomatoes @ $2.00/lb = $1.12

Weekly Total = $9.00

Year to Date = $115.05
