Harvest Totals May and June 2013

May's honey harvest: eight quarts and seven pints.

May’s honey harvest: eight quarts and seven pints.

Here are the harvest totals for May and June (I spilled a beer on my laptop just a few days before the end of May, thus losing the spreadsheet with my harvest data for the month; hero husband recently was able to revive the laptop just long enough to back up my data, so here it is, finally!), with approximate market value (using retail pricing from our local grocery store and the farmer’s market, with guesstimate pricing on items I haven’t seen for sale).  Pricing reflects produce comparable to what we’re growing: high-quality, in-season, organic fruits and veggies, and eggs from happy chickens fed an organic, GMO-free diet.  I try my best to remember to weigh everything I bring into the house, but these weights do not include the food that we graze on outside!  (Weights for fruits, especially, are much lower than the actual production of the plants, since the toddler and I both consume vast quantities of fruit while working/playing outside.)

If you don’t care to look at the chart, there is a summary and total dollar value at the end.
