If you’ve been following our harvest tally over the years here’s a nifty little HARVEST GRAPH 2001-2009 to give you an idea how we’ve been at the fore front of urban agriculture food production.
These last few days, I too have been anxiously waiting the final harvest tally from Justin who’s been going through the invoice books to tally the herbs and edible flower boxes that we harvested and sold (which came to 117 lbs for the year).
On a side note, we just couldn’t figure out how to calculate the weight of 100 plus flats of wheat grass that we grew last year, so we just left them out of the final tally. Oh well.
The extremely wet and cold December affected our harvest numbers, and of course there are still loads of oranges on the trees but it wouldn’t be right to strip the trees clean just to bump up the tally. We were tempted though!
So the numbers are in!
From our 1/10 acre growing grounds: Jan 130 lbs, Feb 139 lbs, Mar 396 lbs, Apr 555 lbs, May 590 lbs, Jun 730 lbs, Jul 1110 lbs, Aug 1228 lbs, Sep 638 lbs, Oct 388 lbs, Nov 492 lbs plus 117# herb and flower sales
517 lbs of produce
14 duck eggs
0 chicken eggs
2010 Year Total
Our previous harvest record of 6200 has been officially broken …..
Drum roll please!
7,030 lbs of produce (fruits, vegetables and herbs only)
131 lbs of honey
307 duck eggs
706 chicken eggs
