Wow, I cannot belive that it is already August 1st!
Where did the summer go?
I feel this summer is flying by because we have a kindergartener in the fall!
Just like last year, I have been weighing all my garden harvests and tracking them.
This way, I know what is worth the space in my garden since my garden isn't huge.
So far, we have harvested:
Beans: 3.1 lbs
Collards: 4 oz
They are ready for a big harvest this week though!
Cucumbers: 14 oz
Again, ready for a big harvest this week for a batch of pickles!
Garlic: 1 lb
Here's where the harvest tracker helps, I'm really not sure if Garlic will be planted again,
I am always dissapointed. Do you have any tips? Tricks?
Kale: 7.3 oz
(Stupid Cabbage Worms!)
Peas: 1 lb 4 oz
I bet the kids ate at least that too! So it might be double!
Potatoes: 3.5 lbs
These are our first successful year! And I have another mound to harvest this week!
Last year's attempt here.
Rhubarb: 2.1 lbs
Carter loved that he could measure it with our Family Ruler! It was 3 feet tall with the leaves on!
Tomatoes: 2.3 lbs
Which shocks me because we've maybe got 4-5!
Last year I grew about 70 lbs, so I guess this shouldn't shock me!
Blueberries 8.9 oz
Maybe a pint or two left on the bushes too!
Strawberries: 1 lb
Wyatt probably ate more than a pound!
Maybe having the strawberries on each of the swing set slide isn't a good idea! ;)
So that makes my total so far 19.2 lbs! Not bad at all!
I'm hoping to start getting some squash and zucchini, for some reason I can never get them to produce!
This year I sacrificed some plants to let one of each to really thrive, so we will see!
Also, I only listed what we have harvested so far! Weve got beets, peppers (hot and sweet), edamame, lettuce, pumpkins, winter squash and more growing!
