January 2014 Summary


January this year wasn't as successful as last years. Last year we managed a 68% vegetable self-sufficiency, this year only 42%. Some of this I believe is due to changing the rotation cycle and making it a continues yearly cycle, rather than two cycles - a winter one and summer one. I am however expecting the continues cycle to provide a more constant output, with less glut. If the garden does keep pumping out 42% each and every month I will be very pleased.
