The first harvest for the 2011 gardening season is lettuce from the hoophouse. This was lettuce planted in the fall which overwintered, a mix of an unknown butterhead type and Red Sails. The week of 4/17 I harvested 7 oz., and this week I harvested 19 oz. My garden expenses to date are $301.43 which leaves me in the red for gardening with crop value at just $5.59, and seasonal net of $295.84. Ouch. Ah, well, we seem to be running about 2 weeks behind last year, so with luck I will soon catch up.
This harvest is part of Daphne’s Harvest Monday series on her fabulous blog, Daphne’s Dandelions. Click over to see what other gardeners are harvesting this May.
