I've got an acre garden that I do some market gardening with. Never came anywhere close to a gross like that. I have noticed increasing yields by incorporating more organic methods each year. Horse poop for fertilizer and a compost pile big enough it gets turned with a loader bucket. Still working on the bug and weed thing.
I liked that they say this was his gross. When I tell people that I made $200 selling for 4 hours at the market they say, "$50 an hour, that's good". I just say "yes". I don't have time to explain about setting up the light tables, starting seed, transplanting plants, tending plants, weeding, watering, picking, sorting, and driving to the market and setting up. My joke among friends is, "I'm working for 37 cents an hour". Last year was a good year, made 44 cents an hour.
Anyway, thanks for posting Dead, you've given me a glimmer of hope for this year. Now I have to go finish potting up a few hundred tomato and pepper plants.
Oh, if you're in NE KS this summer, come by and get some veggies from me. Tell me you're on the DR and I'll throw in a free eggplant. To find me just call, BR 549.
