4 oz. Herbs (thyme, chives, lavender)
39. oz Snap peas
44 oz. Cauliflower
34 oz. Broccoli
63.5 oz. Lettuce
14 oz. Rhubarb
The rhubarb went into a rhubarb custard pie for the holiday, the lavender is being used to make lavender sugar,lettuce was in salads, and the rest of the delicious produce was eaten pretty much adorned with butter and salt. YUM.
We did enjoy a spectacular BLT sandwich with a gorgeous tomato from the farmers market with our lettuce and bacon from our Ruit Farm freezer pig on homemade sunflower oat bread.
Although I did purchase some additional garden supplies (potting soil, neem oil, Sluggo) to the tune of $31, spectacular harvests of lettuce and cauliflower saved the day and we remain in the black here at Henbogle.
The crop value for the year is $319.21, total expenses are at $305.54, total weight of produce harvested is at 61.78 lbs. and the total net value of the crop is $13.67. I hope this will be the last of the garden expenses for the year, so we should be staying in the green for the remainder of the season.
On deck for harvesting this week: our first patty pan squash and zucchini.
