Need Website for Garden Yeild in Bushels
[Return to Topics]

I have been searching, but unable to locate, a good garden yeild chart on the internet. I am particarly looking for one that will give the approx. yeild in bushels or pecks, not just in pounds. It sure would help in determining garden size this year since we are going to be canning, drying or perserving most of the produce. I know about how many jars I will get from a bushel..just can't figure out how many pounds a bushel would be since each vegetable is differant in weight and size. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't think it is on the internet, but Ball's Blue Book has the information you're looking for in the appendixes in the back. Starts with how big's the family and goes to how much to put up and ends up with how much to plant to get enough to put up.

If you're not familiar with it, the blue book is Ball's annual guide to canning, freezing, drying etc. Get a new one, they're about $5-$7 and has lots of good info from planning your garden to what's the best way to preserve each particular item...some things don't can well, but dry great etc etc

good luck,
Tom
