Well 2016 is almost over and it’s been a good year for gardening and growing vegetables. This year we started a new adventure that included building a garden in Upstate New York and then growing our hearts out.
Every year we keep a weight chart to track how many pounds of vegetables we grow. Every harvest weekend we visit the garden, lug pounds of vegetables home in the car and into the apartment and then weigh each vegetable. It’s a fun way to keep track of what vegetable grew good, or not so great and is a easy way to compare year to year.
Last year’s totals were: 458 pounds
This year’s totals were (drum roll please): 1147 lb 6 oz
OMG. That’s over half a ton of vegetables!
