What is left in your garden?

Did your water bill go up because of it?

  • Tomatoes, peppers, zucchini (2nd planting), brussels sprouts, potatoes, broccoli, collards. I also have late planting of onions , salad greens and snow peas coming up but not big enough to eat yet. I'll have brussels sprouts for a long time, last year picked the last of it Dec 2.

  • Weeds . . .. hard as i tried, got all of this beautiful greenery and nothing produced. My water bill did go up, but we also have a pool, so part of that added up.

  • all that's left is weeds....our water bill didn't go up because we have a well, but our electricity bill did, because we have to have a pump for it, obviously.

  • Our water bill did not go up, if anything it should have gone down with all the rain we had this year!

    We have carrots, beets, parsnips, beans, peas, pumpkins, zucchini, spearmint, lettuce, swiss chard, sage, tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, and banana peppers.

    We had a bad year, most of our stuff drowned in all the rain. 32 days of rain. No kidding! Set records, broke records!

  • Potatoes, carrots, a few onions, sweet potatoes, summer squash (still flowering like crazy but not getting much fruit anymore), just pulled out the pepper plants yesterday...I think that's it. Green beans but they're done. No, we rarely water it so it doens't affect our water bill. We've actually had too much rain this year so some of it did poorly due to being too wet.

  • We have tomatoes and cantaloupe and watermelon left. There may be a few peppers as well. We have well water so our water bill did not go up.
