This year's garden harvest was pretty amazing!

34 bulbs of garlic, 1 elephant weighing in at 13 oz
8 lbs Tomatillos
28 lbs Tomatoes (Black Prince, Sweet Olive, Sugar Lump, Yellow Pear, Brandywine, Anais Noire, Roma)
4 lbs Potatoes
1 lb 3 oz Carrots
3 lb Onion
6 oz Peas
10 lb 3 oz Cucumbers
17 lb 8 oz Zucchini
6 lb 3 oz Summer Squash
6 lb Butternut Squash
15 lb Asian Pears
2 lb Strawberries
5 lb Centennial Hops
Unlimited Rhubarb, Chard, Kale, Arugula, Radicchio, Basil,  & Rosemary.
Average egg production - 15 eggs per week.

So far lots of pickling, freezing of tomatoes, tomatillos, and hops.  I've made two batches of Fresh Hop Ale, one with 3 lbs of freshly picked Huckleberries from Mt. Saint Helens, also made Asian Pear wine, and we have feed ourselves through the summer and into the fall with limited reliance on having to purchase any produce from the MAN.  Invest in a garden, know your food suckas!
