Year 2010 in Summary

Fall has passed and Spring is in short distance, I have been away from blogging for many cold months. Before I jumpstart on planning for year 2011, I want to look back at 2010, tally all expenses. Joy of growing vegetables is great, what’s greater is involvement of my kids, it’s amazing to watch – kids will actually EAT the usual and unusual vegetables we grow if they’re involved in seed starting, harvesting, watering.

It’s been good year so far. Joys of growing and harvesting are unmatched but If I have to put $$ to the year review, here it is. Of course manual labor hours are not considered 🙂
Total Spend = $130.21
Total Cost of Food Produced = $199.89

It’s boring to look at number but here’s tally of yearly harvest.
