With everything going in late, I expect some of the harvest to be delayed too. I do have a few really large tomato plants I've been buying one at a time from a guy who reputedly grows some of the heaviest-bearing tomatoes in the area, so we'll see. My container tomatoes, which went in on May 1 and were protected by a makeshift cold frame, are also doing really well.
As you can see at the right, the cold didn't really hinder the herbs. I'm already drying sage and feverfew, which are very important to the overall system. Feverfew, especially, is critical, because I've found that it works for migraine prevention for me better than prescription medications with fewer side effects. (Note: always talk to you doctor, not your blogger, about treating your migraines.)
Overall, the harvest was limited to kale and spinach, of which we harvested 7 oz this month. That's more than a bag full from the grocery, so definitely a savings.
But I'm so looking forward to June! I hope that we really get to get into some harvests and start making (saving) some money! Let's get this garden in the black!
