How time flies when it’s summer and there’s lots of produce! It has been two whole months since I updated you on the harvests, yields, and value of the Grocery Garden bed.

As you can see, we’ve had some great yields on many things and decent yields on others. However, our total value continues to pile up. Over $275 from 100 sq. ft is pretty good! And we have been planting for fall, so there is more still to come.

I THINK a weed that has sprouted in the heart of the rose, Rugosa Alba, out in the rose garden off the edge of the parking lot is poison ivy. …not sure who to tell, so posting it here.
