Adding it up
I just added up all the harvest I have had and from my blogs, I think I have totaled 24 1/2 lbs! While that doesn't even come close to most of you guys' totals, I am very happy! When my tomatoes and watermelon come in, I will be increasing that dramatically. I am so excited! Next year I am seriously thinking of tilling up some of the land instead of buying my soil. Still go with the square foot method, just modify my current soil. It is really getting expensive with the wood and soil. A 4x4 box costs $9 for the wood and about $30 for the soil (the really really good soil). If I just till the soil I have and amend it with peat moss ($4 a 2 square foot bag) and some peralite ($4 I think) with some 10-10-10 fertilizer that I already have and the compost I have been making for the past 6 months, then I should get a good yield from that (ya think?). Anyway, just thinking. Depends on what the economy does between now and then. I might not even be able to FIND this!
