Vegetable Patch (area)

An area equal to 1/38th of an acre, equal to a square approximately 2 rods by 2 rods, or 4 square rods. This would be 1,146 square feet, equal to a square 33 feet on a side. The term 'vegetable patch' refers to most areas of intensive agriculture, including bushes & shrubs, orchards and market gardening.

During a season, a carefully seeded and cultivated vegetable patch will produce approximately 75 lbs. of food annually at a cost of 34 hours of labor, or approximately 2.21 lbs. per hour spent, if the partipant has pruning skill. For those without such a skill, the usual yield will be between 1.0 and 1.3 lbs. per hour of labor.
