Although the Foodmageddon webseries is meant to be a fictional narrative (i.e., the loss of fossil fuels) and a documentary into a parallel timeline, all the work and data are real, of course. This is another post in the on-going series to update some of our gathered data.
I track our data, and one of the biggest pieces of data is my hours worked. People are daunted by the idea of growing a large amount of their own food, but by tracking my hours, I can put a real piece of data behind what I say. You can read a recap of what I’ve been up to in the last few days in the day-before-yesterday’s post.
Since the last time I reported this data (on May 11), I worked about an hour and two-thirds per day, or almost twelve hours per week, which isn’t really that much, when you think about it. A quarter of a 40-hour work week to potentially provide all or most of our food for the year?
Below is the raw data, showing what I’ve been up to each day.
