My high-tech and sophisticated November and December recording sheets (the free notepad left on our doorstep by a local realtor) were somehow confused, so I must combine these two months into one tally.
November/December 2011 Harvest Tally:
17 lbs. of fresh fruits and veggies
Year to date:
484 lbs. of fresh fruits and veggies
We live on a 1/10th acre lot and rent a 20x20 foot community garden plot.
Pretty good numbers! I was hoping for a little higher in the fruit and veggie department, but our 3 new laying hens are right on track, producing eggs all through the winter as this is their first laying season.
Just for fun, a list of the produce we have grown and eaten from our property in 2011:
artichoke, avocado, basil, beet, bell pepper, blueberry, bok choy, boysenberry, broccoli, butternut squash, carrot, cauliflower, celery, chives, cilantro, corn, garlic, lettuce, lime, mushroom, nasturtium, onion, orange, parsley, peach, peas, persimmon, plum, pomegranate, potato, pumpkin, rosemary, sage, spaghetti squash, spinach, strawberry, Swiss chard, thyme, tomato, zuchinni.
In 2012 I look forward to trying some new plants like
We have also been having trouble with veggies being stolen from our community garden plot so we are weighing our options for fencing. Electric barbed wire seems to top the list along with an alligator moat and/or tiger pit. What works well to keep your garden safe? What are you growing in 2012?
