How Much Does a Garden Grow: June 2015
Nothing quite so pretty as a June garden, made even prettier by some harvests!
June brought over 3 pounds of garden harvest worth more than $14. With no expenditures, we are crawling our way out of the red and into the black, which we typically achieve some time in July.
Notable harvests in June included 4 ounces of garlic that grew over the winter and 3 ounces of cilantro, along with a few peas, leeks, and greens.
The big harvest, however, was from our two producing blueberry bushes. By the end of June, they had given us 38 ounces of blueberries, for a comparative retail value of $9.50. This is certainly a substantial harvest from just two bushes, and there will be more to harvest as the season finishes up in July.
As I write, I'm eagerly awaiting the first tomato and cucumber. High gardening season will be here for sure!
