Harvest Totals: June 2012

As expected, our garden harvest has started to increase with the warmer weather.  I'm thrilled that our ROI is firmly in the positive range, and should only increase for the rest of the year. 

We are now harvesting green beans and cherry tomatoes regularly, and this month we harvested half of the yukon potatoes (the rest will be harvested in July).  Our Rutger tomatoes are just now ripening, which means we will have a large tomato harvest starting in July. We also harvested the garlic this month, but didn't weigh them yet, so they are not included in this graph.

Plot of backyard harvest values.  Each vegetable type is weighed separately over the course of the month,
and the value per pound is based on local farmers market prices. 


  1. Congrats! It is so nice to know that gardening, which can seem expensive at times, really does pay for itself.

  2. Thanks! At the beginning of the season, it feels like we are spending a ton of money. I'm so glad we are keeping track of our harvests so that we know we are actually coming out ahead. :)
