Harvest: 1/50 Bushel of Beets

A new unit of measurement needs to be created for farms that measure in square feet instead of acres. It would be nice to record how much the farm is harvesting but the official unit, the bushel, is too large a unit. A bushel of beets is around 50lbs, and we pulled four beets; two golden beets and two chioggia beets.
For two mouths, 1/50th bushel is perfect for Beets In Vinaigrette. The recipe didn't call for this, but the beet greens were steamed and it was all tossed together. Parsley was also picked on the farm.
