Harvest Monday - May 25, 2015
My first harvest of the year. All I can say is…it’s about time! I thought that with everything I learned last year that I would be ahead of the game this time round, but building the new beds and our vacation in the middle of April stuck a wrench in my plans to be on top of things.
Well, the one thing I wasn’t going to be was LATER than last year when it came to my first harvest. I needed to prep the tomato beds and my perennial bunching onions were in the way. The original plan was to transplant them to my onion bed in early spring. But then I decided that I wanted to try other varieties as this particular one (He-Shi-Ko) wasn't really what I was looking for, so I just left them where they were & figured I would pull them up when I needed the space...which is now.

And since I wanted to harvest something that I actually sowed this year, I decided to pick a few leaves from two of the spinach varieties that were a halfway decent size.

My harvest totals this week were:
Green Onions – 1,210 grams (2.67 lbs)
Spinach – 76 grams (0.17 lbs)
Total for Week – 1,286 grams (2.84 lbs)
Total to Date – 1.286 grams (2.84 lbs)
