The Freedom Gardeners are weighing in this month and boy what a harvest!
Initial August Harvest Challenge numbers show us over 2,900 lbs for August alone, for an annual total of over 15,000
The first part August we had cooler than normal temps so the summer veggies were a somewhat of a standstill. So it’s no surprising with such weird weather that the August tally is down from previous years. Now that summer’s back with a vengeance we are hoping that September will get us back to our normal harvest numbers.
Here’s our tally (on 1/10 acre 4,000 st ft) is
Produce: 798 lbs
Eggs: 78 Duck / 88 Chicken
OUR Year to Date Total 3458 lbs of produce, 726 chicken eggs, 722 duck eggs and 17 lbs of honey
Note: To give you a better understanding how small our growing plot is. If an acre represents $1.00 we grow on just 10 cents.
