This past week I finally harvested the rest of the carrots and leeks that were in the ground. I’d been aided in my procrastination by the unseasonably warm November temperatures. Normally I should have harvested them much sooner.
I didn’t weigh the leeks until I’d drastically trimmed them down, so the yield was just over 2 lbs. Now that I think of it, I should have done the initial trimming outside. There would have been much less dirt in my sink. Most of them were chopped and frozen.
The carrots had some carrot fly damaged and so most were chopped and frozen. I probably should have blanched them but I didn’t.
Also harvested this week: lettuce(from the cold frame), kale, & more brussels sprouts.
The total harvest this week was almost 6 lbs.
This brings my harvest total to 399.46 lbs. I know that there are a couple more pounds of brussels sprouts out in the garden to enjoy this month so we’ll break the 400 lb mark before the end of the month.
Eggs this week: 23
November Eggs: 85
Eggs this year: 200
