Tracking the Harvest: August

It's been a long, tough August at my house, but the garden has pulled through for us pretty well. The harvests haven't been spectacular, but they've been steady. The weights, as always, are recorded in kilograms:


August
Tomatoes, ripe
9.95
Peppers
5.85
Southern peas
1.25
Trombocino squash
1.4
Eggplants
0.7
Figs
0.9
Butternut squash, dwarf
1.85



The August total is 21.9 kg, which converts to 48 lb and 4.5 oz.
The 2012 running total, from Jan. through Aug., is 316 pounds, 12 ounces.
Parts of the garden, including the fig tree, were smashed when the tree fell, but I don't think the smashed parts would have added tremendously to the total. Besides the figs, we lost bush beans, parching corn, okra, and some herbs.

  1. Ugh, I know you will be happy to put this setback behind you, I'm just glad you are okay, I still can't believe what happened - that's only supposed to happen to "other people" only on the news!

  2. It's definitely been a rough summer, but at least I have gained a little experience in gardening in a place that isn't where I am living. Since I have been doing the drive-by gardening thing, I have a lot more sympathy with the logistical problems of people working in community gardens. I will be very glad, though, when the construction dust has all settled and life can return to normal!
