After what has felt like the longest, driest of spells possible, we are back in the business of harvesting from our small plot! I am so happy to report that last weekend brought us a nice little bundle of delicious, tart, completely perfect rhubarb that went straight into an equally delicious crisp!
While we have been anxiously waiting for anything to be ready for harvest we have kept ourselves busy with getting the garden in! While it is all not completely in the ground, I'd say we're about 90% there with the rest planned to go in over the next week. The spring has been incredibly long and cool but it has quickly shifted into hot, windy days that are wreaking havoc on everything we transplanted.
Strange, strange weather. I have a feeling we'll either have the strongest veggies possible or we'll lose a few. Time will tell.
I also took some time to create an aerial, digital view of our tiny property, including all of our beds, the chickens, the compost and the bee area. This view now lives on my 1/8 Acre page as a continual reminder of all the work we've done to our plot in the six years we've owned this house...inspiration and exhaustion. A little of both can't be a bad thing, right?
Harvest totals for the past three weeks:
- Rhubarb = 12 oz
- Eggs = 231
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
