A Little Harvesting and Hoping for Rain

Today was a pretty calm work day, compared to last week. It always seems to work that way – one week is super busy with planting, and then the next week there isn’t much to do. There was even less to do today, since the weather got cold and things didn’t grow as fast.

We did harvest a little bit more lettuce and our first head of cabbage. (The cabbage isn’t from the Family of 4 garden, so it won’t get added in below.)

Here’s a couple of our Master Gardeners holding the just-harvested head of cabbage. Removing this plant should allow a couple of the other plants to grow better.

There you can see it after we stripped all the outer leaves off of it. I guess I should have sat it up so you could get a better look at the cool pointy shape. I’ll try to remember that next time.

Family of 4 Harvest:

1.5 lbs lettuce @ $7.00/lb = $10.50

Weekly Total: $10.50

Year to Date: $81.52
