Wednesday’s Harvest

Five Color Silverbeet Swiss Chard

Here it is Wednesday again and I’m caught flat footed. I apologize again for the late post.
This week we have a new kid on the block. Swiss Chard. We grow the Five Color Silverbeet Variety. I just love all the different colors it comes in. From deep reds, pinks, whites and yellows. We also found that the price of organic pastured eggs is higher than we estimated.

Swiss Chard = .9 lb @ $2.99/lb = $2.69 Savings
Artichokes = 6.2 lb @ $4.99/lb = $30.94 Savings
Lettuce = .87 @ $1.99/lb = $1.79 Savings
Eggs = 4.5 dz @ $7.50/dz = $33.75 Savings
Strawberries = 2.2 lbs @ $4.29/lb = $9.44 

Total Savings for the week: $78.61

So for the season so far we’ve harvested:
Swiss Chard: .9 lbs
Artichokes: 34.7 lbs
Lettuce: 8.5lbs
Eggs: 668 or 55.67 dozen
Strawberries: 2.2 lbs
