fi nally harvested some of my fi rst cherry tomatoes, the cost to produce them was around $22.91 per pound. I promise not to complain about the cost at $1.99/pound anymore! I’m growing vegetables to get the authentic high quality fresh fl avors, and it’s well worth it! T ere is nothing like home- grown! And favorable they are! I hope your harvest, what ever it may be is most plentiful.
