Well, I am happy to report that we finally harvested some beets! Three full pounds of them! These guys were planted in the late spring in one of my bio intensive beds (corn, bush beans and beets) as an experiment and did pretty well. They were a little slow to grow, I think because the corn grew so fast this year and shaded them all pretty quickly, but it's OK because they made a perfect addition to our Thanksgiving meal. I've also learned that overwintered beets here tend to get a little woody, so we'll stick with the spring sown beets...they were absolutely delicious!
On a bright note, we have finally balanced our urban farm budget for the year! We're in the black!!! You can see our numbers and a link to the original post on my sidebar if you're interested :-) I must tell you, I am very excited about this! We have invested a lot in our little urban farm over the past couple of years and while we know it will take a bit to "pay back", it really is great to see the actual numbers! Cheers!
This weeks totals:
- Beets = 3 lbs
- Tomatoes = 1 lb 6 oz
- Eggs = 9 ...Yeah, the Ladies are still molting!!! I might need to have a little conversation with them soon!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
