It's time to start harvesting Kale, as my experiment is coming to an end. I think I will have one more big harvest before the project is over.
Kale - 358 g
Broccoli leaves - 113 g
mustard leaves - 57 g
yellow chard - 25 g
smooth lettuce - 73 g
rough lettuce - 57 g
total - 747 grams
Kale - 364 g
Raddicio - 105 g (first harvest too!)
boc choi - 68 g
smooth lettuce 72 g
Total - 609 grams
Lots of lettuce and greens were harvested from the Table 1, 553 grams in greens and 129 grams in lettuce. In the Hydro table, I harvested 537 grams of greens and 72 grams of lettuce. Pretty close!
Within the week, the hydro water levels went down significantly. I had to add 512 ounces (4 gallons) of water. I watered Table 1 3 times in 1 week.
My Kale harvest from the hydro table was dense, however I do not think we will be eating this crop.
One observation I am making is that only the pac choi has been chewed on a bit by bugs. I haven't seen any other holes in the other vegetables, and I've noticed it in both tables.
I think the final harvest will be a great one for lettuce. The lettuce on the hydro table is growing so tall, it's amazing! (you can see the whole image if you click on the link below)
