Harvest Totals December 2013

Here are the harvest totals for December (and final totals for 2013!), 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.

The chickens were the real stars of the farm this month; in what is usually a pretty dry month, egg-wise, due to molting season and the short days, the girls really amped up their laying and gave us more eggs than in October and November combined.

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