Gardening Update

Our adventures as fruit and vegetable farmers for the season are coming to a close. For a $96 investment, our usable yield has been:
  • All the chives, parsley, and rosemary we've wanted
  • Two small yellow peppers of high quality
  • One small cucumber, fleshy and bitter
  • An uncertain quantity (maybe 50?) of super-sweet pear tomatoes
  • Five Roma tomatoes, with hard, wood-like ends opposite the stems
  • Zero green beans (a dog ate the seeds)
This works out to about $8 per pepper, $15 for the cucumber, maybe $2 for each Roma, a quarter each for the pear tomatoes, and let's call it $20 for the herbs.

I think in the future, we should maybe leave farming to the professionals.
