Harvest Monday – June 23, 2014
Okay. I’m going to try to make this a more regular thing again. Now that I’m digging myself out from under too much work and too many bad habits and computer issues and lack of self discipline… for weeks, I was barely even keeping my balcony garden alive and only just keeping up with eating the things that needed to be eaten, so I didn’t take many pictures, and keeping track of my harvests suffered too. Usually I’m pretty good at putting things into my excel table… this time, I had this:
Which covered a couple of weeks – I don’t even know how many. The past five weeks of my records are a complete mess.
But I have harvested things. Lots of things. I don’t know when most of the pictures are from, because my camera is a mess, too, and the date is always off (it always jumps back to January 1, 2006 whenever I have to change the batteries, and I’m always too lazy to reset it.)
So those pictures are probably from the last month or so instead of from the last week. From now on, I intend to keep better track again.
From the balcony:
From the community garden:
And the first couple of raspberries from the forest:
(I’m also feeling rather frustrated with my camera, because none of the pictures I took on my hike/raspberry gathering trip turned out good. Not a single one. Maybe it is time to break my rule of “don’t replace it until it’s broken”. Because there must be affordable cameras out there that can handle taking pictures in the forest – mine pretty much only cooperates in bright sunlight any more. And occasionally not even then.)
Anyway. Those are my harvests, and now that I’ve updated my excel table, my balcony harvests were worth about € 71, and I haven’t calculated the stuff from the community garden yet, or my expenses. The next thing on my far too long list of things that I didn’t do in the last couple of weeks.
Anyway. (Again.) Daphne probably hasn’t lost track the way I have (keeping up with blogs is another thing I haven’t done in the last weeks) so I suggest you head over to her blog and see what she and the other Harvest Monday participants have been harvesting.
