Being week #26 we're at the half way point for this years Urban Ton Project. While we clearly are not half way to the ton we are feeling pretty good about our progress. We eat almost entirely from our yard, and the food is as fresh and nutritious as possible, being picked only moments before eating. We've also produced enough to put a little up for the coming winter. Now that we're entering July the "heavy" crops like tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and summer squash will come into full swing and we expect the poundage to start climbing very quickly. Stay tuned!
To recap this week we produced 30.2 lbs of food. Our chickens laid 24 eggs weighing in at 2.9 lbs. The remaining 27.3 lbs came from produce with the top three being:
5.7 lbs of beets & beet greens
4.7 lbs of napa cabbage
3.7 lbs of lettuce
