Some gardeners used to keep a harvest account every year. It’s good idea if you want to know what your garden gives you except of pleasure and excercise. You can make it easily in paper or in one excel sheet or in a blog post.
I don’t keep my harvesting records until now because I don’t have a scale to weight my harvest. I must buy one. But I used to keep an account for my gardening expenses.
I want to save my seeds for the basic vegetables so in future I will not have seed expenses. I make the start with tomatoes but I collect many other seeds like eruca sativa (rocket) or basil. This year I will try to grow a local heirloom corn which can survive without watering.
I lost 2 trees last year, I plant 3 this year until now. I also want to plant 6 grapes, I plant the first this month.
Well… I can’t find free manure in the area and my soil need a lot. I buy sacks for 3 euro each one when I plant my trees or vegetables. To be honest I need to buy 2-3 truck with manure if I find somewhere near.
I have the basic hand tools but I must buy some expensive tools which work with gasoline if I want to clean my plot from weeds easily.
I think it’s good to keep a gardening account. The result may surprise you. Do you keep a gardening account?
