We have been growing our own fruit and vegetables for many years and are self sufficient with the exception of bananas, mushrooms, oranges and lemons.
Last year we thought it would be interesting to keep and record to see exactly what the harvest was.
It started in March so is only 10 months, next year we will do the full 12 months.
Below is a list of all we harvested in the 10 months March to December 2018.
Some crops did not do so well mainly due to the hot weather and lack of water. Potatoes, onions, brussel sprouts, broccoli and Kale were very poor but the soft fruit were very good with loads of strawberries, raspberries and currants.
That’s gardening for you, we will see what happens in 2019.
