Welcome to another Harvest Monday (Tuesday here in Aus). The garden is looking quite bare as a week of hot weather virtually killed off what was left of our vegetables; just a few capsicums, eggplants and a squash are left.
This week all we have managed to harvest was 2 watermelons (2650 g) and 7 zucchini (972 g).
On a brighter note I finally filled in my vegetable spreadsheet which was created by a gardening friend and tweaked by a teacher friend. So I can now report the money saved by growing our own organic vegetables so far this year. All savings were calculated by using today’s prices for organic fruit and vegetables from an Adelaide market and are in AUD.
Of course, we probably would not have chosen to buy almost 20 kilograms of zucchini in two months and I haven’t included expenditure, even so it does make all the effort worthwhile when you look at the total amount saved!
Harvest Monday is hosted by Daphne on her blog Daphne’s Dandelions, have a look and see what other garden bloggers have been harvesting this past week.
