Weekly harvest report

Each week I like to share my weekly harvest report. Detailing what I have harvested over the last week and how much that would cost from a shop.

Weekly harvest report

This week we have harvested the following

  • 14 chicken eggs which would have cost us £3.50 from a shop.
  • 250g cape gooseberries which would have cost us £2.50 from a shop.
  • 2 cauliflowers which would have cost us £2.00 from a shop.
  • 0.5g saffron which would have cost £2.50 from a shop.
  • A selection of herbs and salad leaves as required. We allow £1 for these.

This weeks total

That bring this week’s total to £11.50. A slight improvement on last week but I feel this is due to the saffron which I have been harvesting for a while now. Saffron is so light that I collected all of this years saffron before weighing it. It’s certainly a valuable crop.

We have also harvested a couple of cauliflowers. Which is an absolute delight to have added to this weeks meal. Homegrown cauliflower has such a superior taste over shop bought.

What have you harvested this week? Let me know in the comments or Email me here.

    £2.50 for a year’s harvest doesn’t seem that valuable Richard, but anyway here goes our weekly harvest report: we harvested £63 worth of veg, up a little as the rain has stopped. We picked: carrots, chard, true spinach, leeks, chicory, broccoli, sprout leaves, brocollini, lots of types of kale, kalettes, main crop and new potatoes, red beets, golden beets, spring onions, celery, tomatoes and lettuce. #Allotmentlife #allotment #autumnallotment #autumngarden #eatyourgreens #gooutside #thegoodlife #stevesallotmentharvest #stevesweeklyharvestsummary @growyourownmag

    In terms of weight the saffron is considered an expensive crop. £5 per gram. But for a years worth I agree although that’s enough to last us a year. Another awesome harvest for you again.
