I went from my garden looking like this in 2010:
To this in 2011:
You can read about the transformation here. 2011 was a good and productive year in the garden. Productive for building and structures, but for actual veggies and harvest the truth is I do not know. There was a ton of cucumbers and not a lot of peppers. This lack of data has led me to make my 2012 garden resolution: WEIGH HARVESTS. In comparison to building retaining walls, trellises, and raised beds, this should be a manageable resolution. Currently I have a simple little scale:
However, I would like a digital scale, especially for weighing light crops like lettuce. I have my eye on this Ozeri scale. Not expensive, and would make my resolution more accurate.
I would also love to have a hanging produce scale like this Detecto one:
However, it is a bit more expensive. It'll have to go on my garden wish list for the time being. Hopefully by this time next year, I will be able to tell you how many pounds of veggies I harvested!
Do you have any resolutions for your garden this year?
