We finally got some rain this week. I was starting to wonder if it would ever come! We have had a storm every day for the last 4 days and that has really helped the yard. But it sure put a damper on our weekend planting plans. The garden is soaked right now so we weren’t able to get our Cole crops transplanted and we had other things that were ready to go in as well. I guess we will give it a day or two to dry out!!
We had just a small harvest this week.
We pulled a few carrots and picked some kale, chard and spinach to add to the last of our mache for a great salad. We love salads that have that many different greens in them, it makes for a great taste and texture!
The hens continue to be egg laying machines. 35 eggs this week! It’s a good thing our egg customer is back in town or we would be buried in eggs right now!
Here’s the totals:
Salad greens (spinach, chard, kale) – .25 lbs
Carrots – .25 lbs
Eggs – 35
Total .50 lbs
That brings our total to 28.5 pounds for the year. Please be sure to stop by Daphne’s Dandelions for more Monday Harvest Reports!!
