Food Numbers

October 27, 2011

The harvest tallies, as well as everything we’ve purchased and foraged are in!  We didn’t quite make our goal of pulling a ton of food out of the garden this year, but we doubled our production at 1622 pounds.  It was a rather cloudy summer, and not all our garden spaces were at max fertility so some crops struggled.  But we put in a lot of new garden space, and I’m confidant we can reach that goal next year. Our portion of the harvest was 1212 pounds, which includes food we ate, gave away, and fed to others.  Some of our biggest successes were almost 140 pounds of winter squash, 72 pounds of onions, 75 pounds of kale, 128 pounds of potatoes, and 39 pounds of raspberries!  We also harvested 20 pounds of chicken for the freezer and about 40 dozen eggs over the last 4 months.
