This week I harvested one thing - one lone napa cabbage. It was the biggest of them all so far at a pound and a half. I still have two left in the garden. One has never headed up since it was in too much shade. The other is its next door neighbor and has a small head.
I have to cut a lot of the outside of the cabbage off to get to the non slug ridden middle part. But never fear the inside was beautiful. I just hate having to throw half of the plant away. Doesn't the head look small compared to its outer leaves?
I made Heather's Veggie Egg Rolls from most of it. I ate them for lunch all week long. Yum. But now they are gone. I've also been eating my stored veggies. At some point I'm going to run out and have to start shopping regularly again. I've really liked having monthly trips to the supermarket for staples as opposed to having to go every week.
My next week's harvest ought to be more varied at least. If the weather holds out and Channel 7 is wrong (they are predicting two very cold nights in a row), I still won't pick it all. If everyone starts agreeing with freezing weather I'll probably go out and pick most all of it. I'll save a bit like the kale and spinach, but I'll want to get the rest cleaned up if we might have frozen soil for the rest of the year.
I did spend money this week. I needed lime, so got some. Or rather I thought I needed lime. When trying to find a place to put the large bag, I found another bag of lime. I thought I had used up the last one. Ah well. Maybe I'll lime the grass some year. I mistreat my grass so badly.
Now onto the tally.
