Regardless of our silly busy-ness and happenings, the garden just keeps trucking along and has given us a few wonderful harvests this week including an absolutely beautiful Cherokee Purple Tomato and a couple of lost (huge) zucchini.
We also harvested 57 eggs! I was asked last week what we do with that many eggs in a week. The honest answer is, we're still figuring it out ;-) We eat lots, give some away and are trying to sell a couple dozen each week. We are also playing with preservation techniques since the winter months always find us a bit low on eggs (we give the Ladies the winter "off" by not adding artificial light to their coop). This week we whipped up and froze 30 eggs in ice cube trays. These eggs (plus the many others we'll stash away in the coming months) will be used for baking throughout the winter.
This weeks totals:
- Basil = 4 oz
- Beets = 1 lb 11 oz
- Bell Pepper = 6 oz
- Bunching Onions = 4 oz
- Bush Beans = 11 oz
- Chamomile = not weighed
- Mint = 8 oz
- Oregano = 3 oz
- Pepper/Chile (Mystery) = 8 oz
- Pole Beans (Trail of Tears) = 7 oz
- Tomatoes = 4 lb 4 oz
- Zucchini = 7 lb
- Eggs = 57
Hope everyone has a wonderful day & week!
