Final Harvest + Big News

November 7, 2010

Well, that’s it. The fall frost has hit and I’ve pulled the last harvest from the soil.

More than three-and-a-half pounds of carrots and nearly two pounds of Swiss chard.

Here’s the final tally:

  • Peas: .1 lb.
  • Arugula: .2 lb.
  • Cherry Tomatoes: 30.475 lbs.
  • Plum Tomatoes: 4.445 lbs.
  • Large Tomatoes: 6.585
  • Cucumber: 5.45 lbs.
  • Purple Beans: 1.85 lbs.
  • Green beans: .3 lb.
  • Swiss Chard: 2.615 lbs.
  • Carrots: 3.88 lbs.

Grand total: 55.9 pounds

Now, for some big news: The Suburban Farm is moving. We’ve bought a new house and will be leaving this garden behind. Normally I would be upset; I’ve invested so much sweat and emotion in all of my gardens. It’s hard to leave them behind. However, our new house comes with multiple garden plots. While that makes the transition to a new place easier, I’ll always fondly look back at the original Suburban Farm.

We’ll be moving in one month, which means there won’t be any wheat updates, nor any other winter gardening projects. I can say this much about the wheat: it ain’t great. It needs more sun. A reminder that spaces that get decent sun during the warm months may not get enough during the winter.

Goodbye, current Suburban Farm. I’m looking forward to making you flourish in your new home.

    Congratulations on the purchase of your new home. I’m jealous. I’m renting right now, which means there is only so much grass I can pull up to plant a garden. I look forward to the day I have my own land to do with as I wish. Good luck with the move and planning the new garden!
