  Editor's Note: We received the following e-mail from a customer who was happy to tell us about his 2007 vegetable garden yield.  
     
  Dear Lee Valley,

I thought you'd like to see a few of my (many) pictures of my urban garden.
I am growing about 12 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, plus eggplants, peppers, zucchini, French beans, herbs and flowers in a very compact space formerly occupied by a small front lawn. The yields this year are the best yet, which I attribute to the biodegradable weed barrier, purchased from
Lee Valley.

The tomato, which is pictured, is almost as large as a dinner plate. Although I haven't picked it yet, I estimate it weighs between 1 kg and 1.5 kg (2.2 lb and
3.3 lb). The yield this year is probably over 1,000 tomatoes. The zucchini have weighed over 5 kg (11 lb) each.
