It was another busy harvest week here at Stoney Acres. This week will actually be the biggest total harvest week of the year. We dug our main crop potatoes on Saturday which will always bring up the totals!!
Between the two types we planted, we dug a total of 160 lbs. We do have about a half of a row still to harvest. But that row is currently over run with pumpkins and we were afraid to disturb them as the pumpkins still have a few weeks of ripening to do. These potatoes will sit on our curing table for only a couple of days and then they will be cleaned off and go down stairs in cold storage.
The tomatoes are still producing well. We got another 12 pounds that we canned on Saturday. Plus about a pound of cherry tomatoes.
The strawberries are a lot slower than they were a month ago but they are still producing. We got a total of 2.5 pounds.
The raspberries are at their peak. We picked them 3 times this week; each picking was about a pound.
So here are the grand totals for the week:
- Eggs – 11
- Potatoes – 160
- Tomatoes – 13
- Strawberries – 2.5
- Raspberries – 3
- Zucchini – 1.5
- Cucumbers – 1
- Yellow Squash – 1
- Total – 182 lbs
That brings our yearly total to 570 lbs from our 1210 square feet of space. Not including greens and other produce fed to the chickens.
