Fall Changes for the SNAP-Ed Garden

Although the summer is over, the SNAP-Ed garden still has a few more things left growing! We have collard greens, turnips, lettuce, spinach, radishes, of course our parsley and oregano, and just one beet made it through for us.

We had some healthy harvests of tomatoes and peppers make it all the way up until last week, check out how different the garden looks once we took those plants out:

 

Our Juliet tomato was our biggest producer, totaling about 1, 171 to the very end! Thai basil did very well, too. Almost too well, we had so much we didn’t know what to do with it! 🙂 The Garden Salsa peppers were another great producer with about 150 peppers by the end.

Here are our totals of what we would have spent at the grocery store so far:

Radishes: $41.11
Spinach: $3.13
Red Salad Bowl Lettuce: $45.18
Garden Salsa Pepper: $10.59

  1. The cost savings are nice but the taste is awesome! This time of the year we also grow a lot of sprouts in our gardens.
