We harvested 4 3/4 lbs. of produce from the garden this week, most notably our first harvest of sugar snap peas. Those babies didn’t even make the photo shoot they were so tasty. Dan and I were pretty hungry and tired after our strawberry efforts, so we had a simple meal of quesidillas on the grill with steamed snap peas on the side. We devoured the entire pound of peas and looked for more.
We are still harvesting lettuce (28 0z.) , kale (24 oz.) and another delicious harvest of broccoli (20 oz.). As close as I am to breaking even, I thought this would be the week, but alas, I purchased some straw for mulch and had to add that into my expenses at $6.50/bale. Sigh. End result: Expenses $274.04, Crop value $271.96 Total: $-2.08. I should have had kale for breakfast I guess!
I’m posting this as part of Daphne’s Harvest Monday series, where you can drool over the harvests of other gardeners who are a zone or more ahead of you. (Daphne, will you please make more of an effort to recruit gardeners from zones 4, 3 and 2. Thanks!)
