Weekly Harvest Report

Even though we only have a few rows of lettuce, spinach, and mustard greens, we ended up with a lot of salad this week!

From the Asian Garden:

  • 3 small heads of Chinese Cabbage, with the extra bonus of a few slugs and roly polys.
  • 3+ bags of mustard greens and mizuna
  • 1 bag of watercress
  • 1 bunch of Hon Tsai Tai (Broccoli Raab) I still haven’t gotten around to cooking last week’s bunch! I promise I’ll post a recipe and pictures soon!

From the Family of 4 Garden:

  • 3 lbs of mixed spinach and lettuce @ $7.00/lb = $21.00
  • Weekly Total = $21.00
  • Yearly Total = $83.13

We harvested the Family of 4 Garden pretty heavily, since I wanted to make sure there was plenty of air flow for the plants. Since we’ve gotten so much rain recently, the leaves were going to start getting slimy and rotten near the soil. Yuck!
