Calculating the Harvest
I’ve tried a variety of ways to keep up with my harvest calculations. My favorite way is to use a little Moleskine. It gets ported around the house, and can frequently be found resting on the kitchen counter or on the side-door steps. It’s also ideal for noting plantings and making diagrams.
I like that I’ll always have a diary of my garden’s history.
There’s still more to come, but here’s how much I’ve picked so far:
- Peas: .1 lb.
- Arugula: .2 lb.
- Cherry Tomatoes: 27.95 lbs.
- Cucumber: 4.56 lbs.
- Purple beans: 1.5 lbs.
- Green beans: .16 lb.
- Swiss Chard: .69 lb.
Grand total: 35.06 lbs.
And no, that’s not a typo: I did pick more than 27 pounds of CHERRY tomatoes.
How do you keep track of what you pick and how you plan?
