I didn't watch the TV show, but I read the books.

Jess had to climb for a long time (estimate 30 seconds plus)

But since squirrels can scale a normal tree (around 10 feet tall) in around 2 seconds, that would make Redwall's height very tall (around 150 feet).

What if we assume that they Abbey pond is actually the lake that Kotir sunk into. It's the only body of water around (besides the river), and it's big enough to hold large fish. If you go on that scale, the abbey would be pretty massive.

The pond isn't what Kotir sank into, the moles diverted the river with tunnels a flooded Kotir if I remember correctly.

I believe the pond is explained in Long Patrol.

It is.

I am trying to build the abbey in Minecraft and realized how fast food grows in the game. Could that apply to the real redwall too. Could the vegetables be bigger? This would considerably reduce the land needed to feed the Abbey. Also, the Cellars hold large amounts of preserved goods, making it THEORETICALLY possible to house 1000 Long Patrol hares for a little while.

Hmm.  I feel pretty certain that all of the food they grow in Redwall is sized about the same as it would be for us.  Apples and things like that are eaten easily, and they aren't mentioned as being huge or anything.

The only foods mentioned as being huge are circles of cheese and sometimes cakes, both of which they make to be huge.
