Monday Harvest Report 4-16-2012

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!!

    I hear you about the rain. It’s been dry here, too. I am glad your garden got a good soaking. Maybe it will grow a whole lot after this rain you had. 🙂

    We got a little rain, but not really enough. Nice greens and good looking carrots! I have gotten spoiled eating my own salads with a lot of different lettuces, greens, herbs and edible flowers from the garden topped off with apples, grapes or avocados and some pickled feta and olives. No restaurant salad can compare!

    Oh I am missing carrots something fierce. Our usual winter crop of carrots was a bust this past year because of a bad carrot fly infestation. Consequently we have been carrotless for months now and I am really starting to Jones for them.

    Ah once again the carrots are the hero of the harvest. They look great. One day I will grow them successfully…one day…
