We harvested more greens and some herbs this week. Earlier in the week I pulled all of our poorly preforming spinach as well as some of the 2nd planting of mesclun greens. 1.5 oz ounces of mesclun and 1.1 oz of spinach. Sadly that was all the spinach we were able to grow. I think a combination of poor weeding and inexperience did us in. Next crop of spinach will be better!
On Saturday we harvested cilantro, parsley, and a salad's worth of romaine, which is doing great. We should be able to pull some more romaine in the next week and a half before the plants are dug up completely. 1 oz of cilantro (just starting to flower) .35 oz of parsley and 4.25 ounces of romaine. Here are the herbs and the romaine taking an ice bath to get the dirt off:For the week:
1.1 oz spinach, 1.5 oz mesclun, 4.25 oz romaine, .35 oz parsley, and 1 oz cilantro.
Weekly total: 8.2 oz/232.46 g
This weeks pushes me over the 1lb harvest total. Not a major milestone, but it's nice to know that I haven't flat out killed anything yet.
Total for the season:
1.175 lbs/18.8 oz/ 532.97 g
The harvest total for the season on the sidebar has been updated.
As has the tomato watch (23 tomatoes have set fruit as of Saturday!)
