Farming: From Daniel Wicker:
CASTLE FIELDS: Nothing to report.
GREEN HOUSE YIELDS: The Castles' green house provides approximately 1 barrel of fresh produce per week, as well as some medicinal and spice herbs. Fresh produce is used as harvested.
FORAGING AND HUNTING: The Foraging detail has harvested only 10 barrels of forage from the nearby forests over the last 2 months. Forage includes mushrooms, acorns, hazelnuts, wild apples, and other nuts and roots. There has been little to forage, as competition with other families is stiff, and the need is great. Few have been assigned to the task, more put toward finding firewood for the castle. Workforce used: Tax time work has been spent clearing some forest on the south eastern side of the outer wall, both to make room for future farms, and to gather firewood for the castle (and some residents) for the winter.
PETITIONS: There are over 140 new petitions in the last 2 months. Mostly starving refugees from Folkestone. All have been turned away, some more forcefully than others.
From ROBERT GREEN:End Page 2
New Recruits: 10
Colton: Work on Wall complete. Mining operation still closed, though they are rebuilding as well. Current Non-mining, non-militia population: 34. All homes have been repaired with help from local militia, and the stoneworkers.

Right now, labor works mostly on woodcutting, land clearing, and various winterizing tasks. Some work on building maintenance and other construction jobs. Some put to work with the preserver, others the glass blower.
Swine: Producing. Slaughter as needed, but can have roughly 3-5 a month.
Chicken: Producing. Capons and old hens: roughly 1800/moth or 60/day.
Sheep: Producing. Slaughter as needed, mostly excess lamb in spring.
Steer: Producing. Slaughter as needed, can have roughly 1/month.
Game: Producing. Eaten as received.
Salted Beef: In Stock - 10,000 barrels from Eagle's Rook. At 50 a month, we have enough for 2000 months! Most likely will only use 30 a month, so we only need 360 for next year. We'll likely trade off much of it for needed items, like cider, beer, ale, beans, rice, seed, and other supplies needed by castle staff.
Eggs: Producing. (gain/eat roughly 300 a week)
Milk: Producing. (depends greatly on schedule of cows)
Cheese: Producing. (gain/eat roughly 1.5 barrels a month, all being used)
GRAINS & STAPLES:
Grain: In stock: 1070 barrels. Nearly 60 barrels a year will be used to feed chickens - mostly waste/leftover. Will likely use @300 barrels to make beers and ales. For 5 months, we'll roughly consume about 30 barrels a month (150 barrels). For 2 months, grain consumption will increase to roughly 60 barrels a month (120 barrels/270 total). The next 3 months will see an increase to 70 (210 barrels/480tot), unless supplemented by forage, and the last 2 months will go to 90 a month (180 barrels/660tot). Will use roughly 10 barrels as seed for planting next Spring, and will 'sell' roughly 10 barrels seed grain cheaply to new farmers that need the help. So, we need roughly 1040 barrels for next year, leaving us a 30-barrel leeway.End Page 6
Corn: In stock: 210 barrels. At 30/month we have enough for 7 months, but it won't stay good that long. We will likely use @60 barrels to make cooking oils, so the corn will only last 5 months.
Potatoes: In stock: 210 barrels. Roughly 10-30/month, we have enough for @10 months.
Sweet Potatoes: In stock: 70 barrels. At roughly 10/month, we have enough for @7 months.
