I've become a bit more serious about plotting the food that I grow and harvest here on the block. Mostly, because of the Youtube shedwars contest I am in... it's actually just an excuse to share gardening tips for beginners but it also forces me to track my produce by weight.
I've decided I will do this for 12 months and maybe even more, even though the contest stops in April. You see, I've realised:
I've tried my best to include fruit, veg, herbs, animal products and meat.
I realise it is incredibly simple to only use weights. If 2 grams of chili make a meal taste fantastic then wow. I once tried to do it with $ values to try to allow for that but even that was a tad silly. It gets even worse when I value add the produce by turning it into pesto or something. It doesn't matter. I'll use this very blunt tool to help me make my calendar and to make myself feel good about my gardening progress.
I'll update on a monthly basis.
