As I suspected our harvest total for June is slightly down from previous years thanks to a cooler than normal June which delayed the ripening of quite a bit of our crops here on the urban homestead.

July is, well, looking like normal July so we should easily get back on track with our average harvest tally.

Here’s our tally for the month of June

Produce: 372 lbs

Eggs (Ducks) 84   (Chicken)  108

Year to Date Total (from our 1/10 acre garden plot)

2012 lbs of produce, 561 chicken eggs, 534 duck eggs and 17 lbs of honey
