Jan-Garden Overview

Hello Folks, I am going to do my best heading into 2017 to have a big old tracking year, I need to do this and I have the book, the paperwork and the plan..  I will make it happen..

Jan Costs

Output Costs: 86.60

Seed Potato’s $56 Dollars

TSP Potato Seeds -$8 Dollars

4 trays with bottoms (will need to recycle tops – 5 each total 20 plus tax 2.60

I was not planning on buying these at all, but I had never seen them, they are built to fit the flat trays for seed starting but they are big enough to replace a standard three times seed replant for peppers an tomato early starts, each tray hold 21 plants,  but my bigger shelf with enough height an depth will only hold two until they could be moved in and out. we will see if this was a sound investment or not.

Jan imputes: Sprouts -2 trays per day.. organic mixed sprouts each tray is slightly bigger then the tray at the store at 3.99 each.. so that’s 8 dollars per day in sprouts

Total produced : $248

Jan $ 161. 40 on the positive side

Well, that’s a easy month.. I assure you it will not be near as easy in the coming months, I plan to write it out daily, otherwise, I know that I will get behind.. The winter supply of sprouting seeds was gotten in fall of 2016 and cost a total of 40 with shipping included in that. Some sprouts are also from my own home saved radish seeds or other saved seeds.

    I plan on sprouting over the next few weeks too, more so to offset our need for micronutrients while we’re in the grip of winter. It’s far too soon to start seeds just yet for the outdoor garden, but I will be planting my indoor salad garden (a trough planter full of various salad greens that will sit in front of a South facing window).
    I can’t wait to get outside though!

    • Its such a great way to get fresh greens, sometimes I don’t know what to make with them, there is only so many things they work with, so I just eat them fresh washed as is. I will be staring a few things (just a few) in feb, but limited by my grown light set up.. very nice on the trough planter, my cats would take it out on me 🙂
