Harvest Totals August 2013

pears

Here are the harvest totals for August, 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.  For example, we have 10 blueberry plants, but have not brought a single blueberry into the house!)

A few of these items (blackberries, for example) were not grown on the farm, but were gleaned from the wild/roadside/parks, or from the trees of people in the neighborhood who couldn’t use all of their fruit.

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

  1. That’s SUPER impressive! Good for you!

      Thanks! It hasn’t even been that great of a year for some things for me (tomatoes, especially), but other things have certainly made up for it. I only just started keeping track of weight and dollar amount this year, and it amazes me, too! Now, if only I had a couple of dairy goats, we’d be pretty self-sustaining foodwise! I’d like to start raising some meat birds, too.
