I have already harvested some kale. Instead of measuring by weight (kale doesn’t weigh much) I decided to record this as 4 cups of chopped kale. Instead of harvesting the whole plant I only took the largest older leaves of a few plants. This allows the plants to survive and grow more tasty leaves I can eat later. I can continue this pattern until it is too warm to grow kale.
Most of the seeds I started in the last post are germinating. Many have been transplanted to larger pots. Most of these were acquired through purchasing larger seedlings and saving the plastic pots. I have added the zucchini and pea seedlings to the hoop house and they are doing well so far.
The chickens have increased egg laying to nearly full capacity. In March they laid 145. That is an average of 4.677 eggs per day. So far in April they have laid mostly 5 or 6 a day. Only one day saw only 4 eggs laid. I have added more oyster shell to their feed to provide more calcium for their egg shells.
