What yield can I expect?

It's seed sowing time - again - hooray! So time to get the pen and paper out and do some forward planning. Because time and growing space are usually limited it is important to plan not only a proper rotation but also to decide which vegetables are most popular in your family and how many plants will be needed.  Include a bit of surplus in that plan then you can conserve produce for the winter by making Kimchi or Sauerkraut, preserve vegetables and fruit in jars or burying root crops in sand or soil clamps.

At Fruit Hill Farm all our vegetable seeds are open pollinated and organic/biodynamic.

The following table should give you an rough idea of potential yields.

Don't forget to sow some Green Manures!  They add life to your soil and attract insects and pollinators.
