“The Freedom Garden Harvest challenge was started to get more people growing food and also adding up what they grow and harvest, instead of going to the store. Many are surprised by the amount of food that they can actually grow in a small space.”
From our 1/10 acre plot, our November harvest weighs in at
Produce (fruits, veggies, herbs) 471 lbs
Eggs Chickens 45 Ducks 20
Pretty good, considering. Thankfully we some of the summer veggies held on a little longer giving us a bump in the poundage!
For the year, the combined tally of 4,703 lbs produce 917 chicken eggs 816 duck eggs and we still have December to go! Also not bad consider what a bummer year it was having to deal with weird weather issues which brought on bug issue.
The Freedom Harvest Challenge is winding down, though our collective growing efforts failed to reach the goal we feel this challenge really encouraged folks to food closer to home.
What’s your harvest tally? Care to weigh in?
