Yesterday I was making dinner and thought to myself that I hadn't used any of the overwintered spinach yet this week. So ten minutes to serving time I ran out and picked it. I washed it up fast and trimmed it. What I forgot was to weigh it. I'm guessing it was the same as last time because the bowl I harvested it in was the same and it was very full. It might have been more as the spinach was grew really well. I didn't even pick it all. I suspect another harvest is in the works for the middle of the week.
And now since Monday Harvest days are are the busiest for my blog, I'm going to ask for some advice while I have a large audience. For those of you that grow Asparagus, how big is your patch? And how much gets harvested from it? Jeavons says 7.3lbs/100sqft. Which means if I put a whole bed of it in that is 4x16, I would get only 4.6lbs. I'm assuming that each family gets half of the harvest in the new house so I would only get just over 2lbs. It doesn't seem like a lot, but I suppose that is a good handful of meals for me. Are his numbers about right?
My tally is very very slowly getting less negative. I'm sure it will go down more than it will go up soon, but for now it is getting better. Total spent: 188.68. Total harvested: $3.44. Total: -185.25.
