Keeping Track of the Harvest: April and May

I have been trying to weigh and record most of what comes into the kitchen from the yard, so I'll have a more accurate idea of how much food my yard provides.

April was a bit of a bust, but overall the yard has been busy growing food for my family. We haven't weighed the smaller harvests that won't register on our scale (for example: just enough lettuce for sandwiches, small amounts of herbs). The weights are recorded in kilograms:


April
spinach
0.5
radishes
0.2
Lettuce
0.15


May

radishes
0.3
Lettuce
1.25
Onions, bulbing
2.95
Onions, multipliers
0.85
Peas
0.27
spinach
0.35
Bush beans, green
1.4
Potatoes
8.3
Zucchini
5.2
Garlic
1.9
When those numbers are converted to pounds and ounces via an online calculator, April still looks like a dud, but May looks pretty good:


April total 0.85 kg = 1 pound 13.9 ounces
May total 22.77 kg = 50 pounds 3.1 ounces
Running total: Jan. through May = 77 pounds, 11 ounces
