How can a gardener complain?
Our jars of dehydrated vegetables from last summer are slowly but surely being emptied, so I will be very glad when the harvests return to being more abundant. In March and April, harvests were definitely down.
The total so far for the year is less pathetic than I thought it would be -- the total is 19.65 kilograms, which converts to 43 pounds 5.1 ounces.
March and April harvests contributed to that total as follows:
March (in kilograms)
Radish, winter 0.2
Beets plus greens 0.9
Onions, green 0.4
April (in kilograms)
Green onions 0.45
Beets plus greens 2.5
For March, the total harvested added up to 2.55 kilograms, which converts to 5 pounds, 9.9 ounces.
For April, the total harvested added up to 3.35 kilograms, which converts to7 pounds 6.1 ounces.
