Here’s what one Ancona family took home from the garden on an average summer Saturday. This is their “payment” for watering the plants and feeding the chickens.

For those keeping score at home, they harvested

  • 1 medium cabbage (approximately 5 cups)
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup chard
  • 2 c beets + 1 c beet greens
  • 2 bunches herbs
  • 3 eggs (not shown)
for a total of 15 servings.
