Weekly harvest report.

On a weekly basis, I like to report on what I harvest each week. This post is all about that report.

Firstly, however, I normally share this post on a Sunday and a podcast on a Monday. Due to being full of cold, I am a little late sharing this report and this week’s podcast is a going to be recorded a bit later in the week. I do apologise for that but I don’t want to be recording with a lot of coughing.

Weekly harvest report.

This weeks harvest has been interesting. Lovely fresh food is certainly coming in which giving this time of year I am really enjoying.

  • 100g of salad leaves. A mix of spinach, chard, rocket and sorrel. This would have cost £1.00 from a shop.
  • 11 chicken eggs. which would have cost £2.75 from a shop.
  • 21 quail eggs were laid this week but of this 21, 6 eggs were placed in the incubator to try to get more quail. This left us with 15 eggs for eating. these would have cost us £3.15 from a shop.

This week’s total.

All this together brings this week’s total too £6.90 had we brought all this produce from a shop. I am pretty happy with that amount of food to be fair although I will be very happy to get more great food coming in from the plots.

How much have you harvested this week? Let me know in the comments below.
