One of the toughest things about planting crops in a self-sustainable manner is determining how much to plant. Too little and you won’t have enough to feed yourself through the growing season or you might have enough to get through the harvest but you might not have enough to set anything aside for the winter months. Trying to calculate the right amount to feed you through summer and fall and have enough left to prepare for the winter months can be a complete gamble. Unless you read this handy article and calculate your families produce consumption and plan ahead. From Scratch Mag has a formula and a chart to help you plan better for next year. Very handy! Have a great day and God bless!
