Wednesday’s Harvest

Oh boy! It’s been a few weeks since I posted our harvest totals. Why? Well, I was on my honeymoon the last couple of weeks. We spent 10 days traveling around the UK from London to Inverness and almost everything in between. When we got back everything had exploded! While we were gone the heat finally came – it had been the coldest May on record here. Our tomatoes grew about 2′ as did our corn, beans and cucumbers. Unfortunately our peas didn’t fair well in the heat and have now been taken over by powdery mildew. The Swiss Chard and Lettuce all bolted as well. So we’re going to leave them and save the seed for the fall. So the counts since I last updated you are as follows:

Swiss Chard = 2.7 lb @ $2.99/lb = $8.07 Savings
Peas = 13 lb @ $5.00/lb = $65.00 Savings
Parsnips = 1.55 lb @ $2.99/lb = $4.63 Savings
Onions =  2.18 lb @ $1.99/lb = $4.33 Savings
Potatoes = 1.8 lb @ $2.50/lb =  $4.50 Savings
Zucchini = 5.06 lb @ $3.18/lb = $16.09 Savings
Garlic = 2 heads @ $1.00/ea = $2.00 Savings
Blueberries = .06 lb @ $7.26/lb = $0.44 Savings
Eggs =15.58 dz @ $7.50/dz = $116.88 Savings

So for the season so far we’ve harvested:
Swiss Chard: 4.6 lbs
Artichokes: 34.7 lbs
Lettuce: 11 lbs
Eggs: 955 or 79.58 dozen
Strawberries: 2.2 lbs
Peas: 34.3 lbs 
Parsnips: 1.55 lbs
Potatoes = 1.8 lbs
Onions =  2.18 lbs
Zucchini = 5.06 lb
Garlic = 2 heads 
Blueberries = .06 lb
