2016 Homestead Garden Harvest

Our garden harvest needs always needs to be documented every year. It helps to keep up with the time of year we start and end harvest and the amount collected. As a little game, I push to grow more pounds of food every year. It’s a win-win scenario every year so why not play it.

2016 gave us a small amount of fruit and vegetables because we suffered through a terrible summer and fall drought.
