We took our harvest numbers from 2017 and put them into chart form so you can easily figure out not only how much you can produce but also the value of your harvest. Of course, there’s really not a number you can put on knowing where your food came from and the convenience of being able to harvest from the comfort of your home. The value of the harvest is based on averages and may or may not reflect prices in your area since pricing will fluctuate based on time or year and location in the United States.
These numbers are based on our actual harvests from our vertical garden. For more info on how we grow and what we plant, visit our blog and Facebook Page.
As you can tell from our chart below, what you grow has a big impact on how much money you will save on produce. You can also see that you can easily make your money back from initial gardening investment by growing your own food at home. Container gardening with the GreenStalk Vertical Planter makes it so easy to grow food for your family and community plus it’s not a large upfront investment. All you need is the planter, some high quality potting mix, seeds and water. You don’t need seed starter kits, grow lights, soil amendments, gardening tools or anything else.
So let’s see how much money you can make!
Yield Per Pocket: This number indicates how much you can expect to harvest from one single pocket of the GreenStalk Vertical Planter
Measurement: What unit we are referring to (examples: 1 head of lettuce, 1 carrot, etc.)
Number of Months: Estimated amount of time it takes from seed to harvest
Number of Harvests: How many times we harvest from a single plant
Approx. Grocery Store Value: The amount you would pay for a similar item at the grocery store on average
Number of Pockets Used: If you grew in a 5 Tier GreenStalk Vertical Planter, this is the max. number of pockets you can use if you planted the entire GreenStalk Vertical Planter with 1 crop
Total Value Per Planting: Yield Per Pocket x Number of Harvests x Grocery Store Value x Number of Pockets Used = Value Per Crop Per 5 Tier GreenStalk Vertical Garden
