Now the old spreadsheet is getting wide enough that I will have to split it in two parts next month! But I think you can see some of the salient points for the harvest coming in for June.
- The cucumbers just started to come in at the end of the month. I found a store-bought price of $0.99 per pound, which I reserve the right to change later if I find an organic equivalent. They are cheap, but they weigh up quickly.
- The zucchini, of course, is practically a cash crop around here. We have started to eat zucchini daily.
- Blueberries have been a pleasant surprise, with the farmers' market equivalents coming in at $5.00 per pint volume, which weighs out to 11 ounces on my scale. Our bushes gave 15 ounces of blueberries in June and, as of this writing, are still cropping.
- Radishes turned out to be a disappointment, bolting quickly before I could get very many to eat. Sigh. First real loss of the year.
- Peas and strawberries are container crops that I don't try to grow a lot of. Nonetheless, they made for some great snacking while gardening.
- Finally, the first harvests from my container potatoes brought in over a pound of fresh new potatoes, which were seriously yummy. I currently have four containers growing and a number of volunteer potatoes in the garden.
