It's been a cool summer and the worst year I've ever had for basil. It's not growing well and turning black (just like when it gets a frost.) I think it's the cool nights. We've been down in the 40's some nights. Basil LOVES and thrives in warm. I do still have pesto in the freezer from last year, think I'll hoard that as we'll be lucky to get more this year. (Usually I do 10-15 for the freezer.)
Well here we go, and again I'm pricing the best I can. Oh, and I rounded some this time, tired of math... This was as of about the 1st week of August, I'm behind on posting.
|My first Eden Melon|
Zucchini (.99lb) = 12.18
Bok Choi 6oz ($1.99 a bunch) = 1.00
Swiss Chard 6oz ($1.99 bunch) = 1.00
Pea Pods 10 oz = 1.25
Raspberries 5lb 12oz =15.75
Cucumbers 9lb 6oz ($1lb) = 9.00
Cabbage 4lb 8oz (.50lb) = 3.00
Cilantro 1lb 6 oz = 3.50
Basil 4oz = $1.40
Eden Gem Melon 6 ($2ea.)= $12
So adding this (60.08) to the $69.55 thus far I have 141.63 that has been produced. With the new things I added this year I was still 71.45 in costs more than what it had produced. So now I'm only $11.37 of breaking even.
