Squash (including zuchinni) - harvest every 3 to 4 days, producing 7 barrels per harvest
Cucumber - harvest weekly, producing 6 to 7 barrels
Each barrel is 30 gallons, so on a weekly basis we are producing :
Squash = 420 gallons per week
Cucumber = 210 gallons per week
ITs time to start dehydrating some of the harvest for winter months, since the harvest will continue to improve over the next month.
The beets are ready to harvest, not as many as we hoped for but still significant. We expect quite a few barrels, maybe 12.
The cabbages are struggling in the heat
The pumpkins are doing great, probably ready to start harvesting in 2 weeks.
Here's a look at the pigs enjoying today's picking of cucumber:

These sausages are Excellent for BBQ in the summer heat, giving a robust flavor and the knowledge that your family is consuming only the best meats available.
The day was a nice success. the products were well received and were selling off the shelf fast enough to require restocking several times! We are thinking about doing one more taste day in the near future for the upcoming NEW flavors!

One great benefit of multi species farming, that includes both plants and animals, is no waste! What would normally be a problem in a garden, weeds, become a blessing and nutritional powerhouse. The hogs, pastured heritage hogs , absolutely love weeds, and they are good for them!
This morning I pulled the mature almost seedy weeds from three rows of melons and simply three then over the fence. The hogs actually walked away from their corn pile to Munch down on the delicious fresh salad!
Even the babies tried some. Before long, there were but a few scraps of leavees and stems left.
Here are some of the emerging veggies... Pigs are going to be eating well soon!
