How much did I spend growing my own in June.

Let's take a look at how much did I spend growing my own throughout June.

Poultry costs.

During June I had to buy a 20kg bag of layers pellets for the chickens. This bag I managed to buy a little cheaper this time costing £6.50 and a 20kg bag should last 3 months.

I also bought some wood shavings for bedding for all the poultry I have. I bought a couple of small packs and 1 large pack. In total these cost £7.68.

This brings the total to £14.18


I bought a few plants to replace plants that  I lost. While not all these made it either I did spend £3.98 on them.


Most months I also buy a magazine in order to keep up with the latest updates. This also gives me a good supply of seeds. This costs me £4.99.

This month's total.

That brings this months total too £16.65. Quite a bit lower then previous months but this is as we are getting later in the year and fewer materials and equipment is needed.

In May I harvested £108.51 worth of food. That means that May profited £91.86 which is a very healthy amount of money to be saved through growing our own. Let's hope this profit continues.

  • I don’t have all the figures with me today Richard, but I think we spent £100, £70 of which was on making a new netted frame, the rest was on seeds and eye savers for canes. We harvested about £800 in fruit and veg for a profit of £700 for June. I will be doing a video with the latest data soon.

  • Great stuff Steve. I will check out that video when it comes out. £700 profit is still a pretty good profit in a month. Great stuff as always.
