I’m behind, as usual. That’s why I’m doing Harvest Monday late on Tuesday. And after I get this post done, I need to process and send photos to the paper to go with my Thursday column in the HB Independent, and then post a blog to accompany it. Arg, it’s already 10:30 pm. Does anyone else find it daunting trying to work, manage a household, garden (including caring for chickens), cook, compost, and keep up with blogging?
Part of being busy this week included NOT photographing most of the harvest this week, including NOT photographing some of the delicious meals I made with it. Too bad, because the stirfry with snap peas, red bell peppers and red onion was beautiful and tasted fabulous.
BTW, my blog hit count is up to 9,639. I may hit 10,000 sooner than April 18, which is when I thought the count would roll over that number.
Harvest for the week prior to April 12, 2010
19 eggs (a new productivity record)
1lb 8 oz. snap peas
3 strawberries (2 oz.)
5 oz. chard microgreens
TOTAL 19 eggs plus 1 lb, 15 oz. produce
