Yields per plant
I'm hoping someone out there can help me figure out yields. Unfortunately, I am not a good record keeper, and am now trying to figure out an average yield per plant for crops I am growing next year, as I know how many pounds of produce I need, but not how many plants I need. I have looked at Johnny's chart, and while some crops seem accurate, other do not. For example, they have that a 100' row of tomatoes will yield about 150 lbs of fruit - which is 1.5 lbs per row foot. I have harvested 10-20 times that amount per row foot.
I know it is a very general question, that is dependent on many factors - soil fertility, spacing, weather, varieties, etc. but I am hoping someone has a very general answer, or knows of a website that can help me plan for next year. I am hoping to find the average yield per plant of peppers, eggplant, tomatoes (I have found that 10 lbs/plant is a pretty safe estimate, while some will yield much more) squash, and cucumbers.
Again - I know it is a very generic question - that I wouldn't have to ask if I kept better records from previous years! Any help would be MUCH appreciated!
