Harvest-Mania!!!!

Brandon and I have been recording every single item  that we have harvested from the garden and we are absolutely amazed at the amount of food that can be produced in such a small space.

  1. We forgot to mention the actual square footage of the garden. We have 4 small beds totaling 280 square feet of growing space. We think that we can reach a much higher volume next year once the extreme desert garden learning curve wears off.
