How Much Does a Garden Grow: August 2015
August is always a great month for the garden, and this year was no exception. We brought in just over $200 worth of produce, some of which got turned into canned chili sauce and green beans for some of Mr. FC&G's favorite meals.
Stand-out producers this month:
Cuor di Bue tomatoes stand at 20 pounds harvested.
Our "Yulia" volunteer variety stands at 6.3 pounds harvested.
The San Marzano has brought in 13.3 pounds.
My favorite, the Black Krim, is at 9.4 pounds.
Also, by the end of August, I had harvested 26 ounces of beans (for a value of $4.94) and 15 ounces of peppers (value of $2.85), with those two crops poised to take off in the month of September.
Finally, the cucumbers finished strong at 59 pounds harvested by the end of August for a total value of just over $151.

Harvest Value: $425.79
Total Saved: $285.39
