Our harvest totals so far...

Every year, I mean to tally our harvest totals. This year, I finally remembered to do it. I thought it would be fun to see how much we harvest and use it as a math teaching tool for the girls. I am only tracking yellow squash, tomatoes, green beans, and cukes as the other items are not as plentiful. So far, we've harvested:

16 lbs of yellow squash

9 lbs of tomatoes

22 lbs of green beans

5.5 lbs of cukes

Pretty impressive, I'd say for a small garden like our's. We've eaten most of it. I've frozen some green beans and we'll give some to the local food pantry. I am hoping they will take it frozen, which I think would be much more useful to folks if they don't have to eat it immediately.
