After many trials and tribulations we successfully harvested some really wonderful carrots, and not just 1 or 2, but a few pounds worth!!! I also pulled my 'tester' horseradish plant, it was the smallest of the lot because it was shaded out by the rest of the horseradish plants and other herbs, but it gives me hope - the remaining plants were easily 3 or 4 times larger then this one, so hopefully the roots will be a little bigger then what we brought home.
No complaints though, I still get to make a wee bit of horseradish with the 'tester' roots!
Below is a look at the rest of the harvest over the past few weeks:
Swiss Chard: 11.45 oz
Tomato: 6.95 lbs (111.25 oz)
Radish: 2.65 oz
Carrots: 3.725 lbs (59.60 oz)
Rosemary: 1.25 oz
Dill: 1.0 oz
Sage: 2.35 oz
Mint. .10 oz
Horseradish .85 oz
Total for the last few weeks: 11.90 lbs (190.5 oz)
Total for the season: 62.75 lbs (1004.10 oz)
We are inching closer to last years total of 63.84 lbs. With only some herbs & horseradish plants left it is going to be a very close call if we hit the mark, but we are so close it feels good that we grew approximately the same amount in different quantities this year!
