Garden wrap up from 2012 and onto 2013

Just a quick post to give totals for our garden from 2012.

I never did wrap up our totals for 2012, so I wanted to do that now. My last report was from August, and I had reported a total of about 43lbs or produce. We had a very prolific fall w.our tomatoes! The grand total in pounds for the Shiner garden 2012 was 87.5 lbs!!!
Here’s the breakdown:
Broccoli 27.3
Radishes 3.2
Basil 25.6
Beets/Greens 42.2
Golden Beets/Greens 6.5
Blueberries 2.3
Lettuce 1.4
Fennel 0.1
Chard 36.55
Sun Golds 359.8
Onions 19.7
Green Beans  31.5
Strawberries 1.4
Eggplant 36.3
My Girl Tomatoes = 137.8
Green Zebras = 460.03
Black Cherry Tomatoes = 57.55
Poblano Peppers = 18.25
Carrots = 14.7
Sweet Peppers = 40.95
Lemon Balm = 0.3
Raspberries = 0.1
Heirloom Bean = 0.2
Leeks = 8
Cabbage = 23.8
Brussels Sprouts = 44.55

1400.38 oz of produce = 87.5 lbs!!

We learned a ton about what to do and what not to do in terms of placement, spacing and symbiotic relationships. The boxes this year will be far less packed and spaced out better. We have already started with peas and kale and are anxiously awaiting them to sprout. We’ve also put in onions, which should be ready to pull in about 60 days, as well as some that take 90 days.¬† As the season gets going, I’ll be sure to post pics of whats going on. I will also continue to post recipes here so be on the lookout for something tasty soon!!
