Highest Yields

We'd like the opportunity to brag a little bit about our yields.  We use 100 ft² as our unit of area because it is more useful than an acre for our purposes. Few who grow food for themselves will find it useful to know how much kale can be grown in an acre, for instance.  But the equivalent yields per acre are provided anyway, for fun.  Also, for perspective, the actual area growing that particular high yield is listed.  ADBM denotes "air-dry biomass", used for the mature material in compost piles.
Crops will be added as I have time!

  1. Hi Dan and Margo,

    Can I get in touch with you via email? I have a question about the Golden Rule community that preceded the current garden.
    Thanks,
