Harvest Monday 07/23/2012


This year I am trying to be a little smarter when it comes to harvesting. Last year I would pick a day and just harvest as much of everything as I could. That usually left me exhausted and the fridge stuffed. This year I am just trying to pick a bit everyday so I don’t get too overwhelmed. With that said what was I able to harvest this week of the 16th to 22nd

I finally got my butt in gear and harvested the rhubarb. It was getting pretty big. This is one of the larger leaves...HUGE I put a marker on for scale

I was able to harvest 2.33kg

I did another cut of lettuce and got 340g or 12oz

The chives needed to get a hair cut 85g

My first TOMATO!!!!! 140g

Weekly total 2.895kg 6.38lbs


Grand total to date. 5.758kg or 12.69lbs
Radish 5.2 or 147g
Basil .1 2g
Radish 5.26 lbs or 2.39kg
Lettuce 615g
Spinach 1.8 oz or 51g
Early Girl TOMATO140g
chives  85g
Rhubarb  2.33kg



I am linking up with Harvest Monday’s over at Daphne’s Dandelions. Go on over and see what everyone else is harvesting

Have a great day

  1. Wow! How excellent for you!! I have no tomatoes yet although when they start, if that happens, there will be lots. I think I have to move/spread out and feed my rhubarb.

  3. I really wish I'd get off my butt and pick the rhubarb and freeze some for the winter. I've just been to lazy since I can put it off as I do other things. I need more cool weather to make me want to go out and work.

  8. Hurrah for the first ripe tomato! Always a cause for celebration. Lots of great harvests for you this week. I find pacing my harvests out over the week is much more easy to manage.

    KitsapFG-I am pretty happy with the first tomato. It was the biggest one on the vine i hope the rest start growing!
