September 2014 Harvest

We crossed 100 pounds once again this month — just barely, but we crossed it! Compared to September 2012, when we harvested 19 lb, 9oz, we’re looking at quite a dramatic difference!

We’ve gone from 122 eggs last month, to 129 eggs this month. Another good harvest of rabbit meat. The last of the potatoes, tomatoes, and beans were harvested this month, but next month still promises a good harvest of sweet potatoes, beets, greens, and the like.

Here’s our totals by produce (harvest for September 2012 in parentheses).

  • Apples 0 lb. 11 oz. (N/A)
  • Basil 0 lb. 9 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Beans 7 lb. 6 oz. (0 lb. 5 oz.)
  • Beets 1 lb. 5 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Carrots 0 lb. 0 oz. (1 lb. 6 oz.)
  • Chard 2 lb. 14 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Eggs 12 lb. 14 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Kohlrabi 0 lb. 2 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Leeks 1 lb. 0 oz. (1 lb. 12 oz.)
  • Lettuce 1 lb. 4 oz. (2 lb. 2 oz.)
  • Peppers (Jalapeno) 1 lb. 4 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Peppers (Sweet) 1 lb. 15 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Potatoes 32 lb. 12 oz. (5 lb. 12 oz.)
  • Rabbit 22 lb. 9 oz. (N/A)
  • Squash (Summer) 0 lb. 15 oz. (0 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Squash (Winter) 8 lb. 6 oz. (N/A)
  • Tomatoes 6 lb. 6 oz. (6 lb. 0 oz.)
  • Turnips 0 lb. 4 oz. (1 lb. 12 oz.)

Total: 102 lb. 6 oz. (19 lb. 9 oz.)

For the year, the top five producers by weight are potatoes at 94 lb. 0 oz. (51 lb. 0 oz. in 2012), tomatoes at 69 lb. 8 oz (75 lb. 14 oz. in 2012), rabbit at 69 lb. 6 oz, summer squash at 66 lb. 2 oz (27 lb. 10 oz.), and lettuce at 34 lb. 3 oz. (21 lb. 5 oz.).  We’re at 479 lb. 10 oz. for the year. We will definitely cross 500 pounds for the year once those sweet potatoes are harvested, and now that the fall/winter harvests are picking up. Plus, when we land back in the states, the first of the Brussels Sprouts will be ready for harvest! YUM!!
