This week has been all about the rain. It has been dreary with a damp chill, but rarely below freezing. I uncovered the beds in hopes of letting the plants air out and not rot.
This week's harvest is similar to last week with 3.8 oz of broccoli:
The broccoli has only a couple of more small harvests remaining. It has been nice to have a bit of broccoli throughout the winter. I think next year I will devoted another row towards broccoli planting. I just started broccoli seedlings for the spring and I'm thinking of planting more (if I can find the space).
Unfortunately, cauliflower has not been a success. I have six cauliflower plants and zero harvests. One started producing a head and it turned brown and rotted while it was still very small. Two of the plants were not planted in a bed with a row cover and though they are still alive, I doubt they will produce anything. The remaining three plants are under a row cover and show no evidence of producing a head. They have lots of leaves and look healthy, perhaps they will do something when spring arrives.
Also this week, I harvested three turnip roots at 8.6 oz:
And a handful of spinach at 0.5 oz:
My weekly total was 12.9 oz, bringing my yearly total to 10 lbs.
