Look at how many pounds of vegetables we grew in our NYC rooftop garden!
I know, I know. It’s May 13th and I’m finally getting around to posting our 2015 garden yield totals. Sorry for how long it’s taken, but better than never, right?!
Drum roll please….!
In 2015 we grew…
458 pounds of vegetables! In NYC! In sub irrigated planters!
Woah! Double woah! High 5!
See the full break down behind the cut.
|Sugar Snap Peas||161||10|
Compare here to 2014 to see the jump in weight!
These are only Spring and Summer totals. We didn’t plant anything in the Fall last year due to the Upstate project, so I’d say 458 pounds in 2 seasons is pretty great!
Broccoli and Cauliflower were a bust last Spring. We only were able to harvest a little bit before it started to flower due to the hot temperatures we experienced early on.
We didn’t grow pumpkins, that’s why it’s 0 pounds. Don’t worry though, we are growing pumpkins this year (lots of them!).
Beans were really successful and this year we’ll be growing even more dry beans.
Tomatoes, as usual, rule the garden (and our freezer).
Not bad for a a garden on a rooftop!
Have a good weekend everyone!
