How Much Does a Garden Grow: November
But really, there you have it. November's harvest slowed to a trickle, as you would expect it to. A little bit of greens, a couple ounces of leeks, a couple of peppers salvaged before I dumped the plants in the compost. This time of year makes me so sad, as a gardener. I mean, yeah, I get the whole "circle of life" thing. I've seen The Lion King.
"Look, Simba -- everything the sunlight touches is our kingdom. Except, over there, that's the neighbor's yard, so we can't microfarm there. And that's a suburban intersection, so the city will have a fit if we dig that up. But across the street is a nice, respectable microfarm garden, and nearby are the bike paths we will ride again in spring...."
Something like that.
Anyway, with less than a dollar of harvest this month, I present you with the tallies. The only thing I can really point out is that I'm sailing along at about a 237% return on investment, which isn't too shabby.
