We escaped the frost on Friday night, probably due to the wind ushering in the cold front. Dan and I had headed out for a camping weekend, but were pleased to see the garden escaped the frost when we returned home.
With back to work busyness and reaching escape velocity for camping, we did not do much gardening this week other than picking and processing tomatoes, giving away some of the bounty. We picked quite a few lovely Pineapple tomatoes from the hoop house, a hot pepper, 11.5 oz. of broccoli, over 5 lbs of squash, 3 oz. of peppers, 17 oz. of carrots, and 22 lbs. of tomatoes.
The carrots were mixed. They were all supposed to be the same variety, but there are clearly two different types. In addition, several of the carrots showed damage, both wire worm and possible rodent damage, too. They tasted pretty good, though!
The weeks harvest tally amounted to 29.4 lbs. for a yearly total of 306.28 lbs valued at $1072.68. Less my expenses, unchanged at $383.06, the value of my garden harvest this year comes in at $689.62. This post is part of Daphne’s Harvest Monday series published on her blog Daphne’s Dandelions.
