The grand total for all of our 2012 garden harvests adds up to 456 lbs of delicious top quality fresh food. We preserved (bottled) a lot of our surplus for later eating, lots of tomatoes, beets, pickles, salsa etc. We actually had some great bottled beets tonight for dinner, they add a nice color and variety to the dinner plate. The kids loved how it turned their rice purple.
$861.71 Worth in ProduceSo when we add up what all our garden goodness would cost in the store, we come up with $861.71!
That's over $71 per month in fresh off the vine and straight to the table fruit and veggies.
We used normal everyday pricing gathered througout the year. We did not collect the organic pricing, which our food would stack up well against. When you look at organic produce, you see a very high premium.
