I'm pleased with our steady improvement in our garden every month. This month, we harvested 23 lbs of produce and 87 eggs, for a rough value of $118. The most exciting part of this month is that our Return on Investment is finally positive at $28! Our combined value of produce and eggs this year (based on local farmer's market prices) is almost $400. Our investment cost is based on the amount of money spent on seeds, potato seeds, plants, soil, electricity/water for seed starting, chicken feed, etc. All garden-related expenses are added to the investment cost--ours was roughly $370 so far this year.
Our poundage went down from last month, but our estimated value grown increased because we were mostly harvesting collards last month, and this month we harvested a ton of snap and snow peas (which are more expensive than collards, here).
