While I was researching yesterday's post on How much should I plant to feed my family, I found a couple of great related links that list estimates for how much yield you can expect from your garden.
- This is a great post from From Scratch Magazine on How Much I Need to Plant to Feed My Family. There is a downloadable pdf chart. Read the whole piece and note that these are fresh food estimates. She multiplies by 5 to cover both fresh eating and preservation amounts. The chart includes estimates of how much seed you need, estimated yield per 100 ft row and an average amount suggested per person. It's geared toward big time gardens.
- Another interesting list at Bonnie Plants is here. Their list includes approximate yields per 10 ft row - geared toward backyard gardens. I like this list a lot and it includes lists for cool season plants as well as warm season plants. With a bit of planning, your garden can do double duty and with a bit of protection you can garden 12 months of the year even in the northern US.
- Here's a great collection of information for beginner gardeners. This page has all kinds of great information for you to get started.
