And that compares to mine - a 4'x4'x3' block of ice.  But, it did get up to 32ºF today, and the snow is beginning to melt.  Shocked

Mark's first SFG - Page 9 Empty Boy Choy 2022

Post  markqz 3/14/2022, 2:12 pm

This is the best my Bok Choy have ever gotten before being attacked by bugs. I thought I had "baby" Bok Choy, but it turns out they're actually "adult" Bok Choy. The camera doesn't capture the way the morning sun makes the stems glow.

What variety? It looks like one of the "toy" choys, which I have grown to prefer over the common big green bok choy. This was the first winter I didn't grow any.

I think it is Purple Lady Bok Choy, and based on those pictures I should be harvesting now. My modus operandi with most leafy things is to take the outer leaves as I need them, so I harvest over a couple weeks instead of all at once.

I also harvest outer leaves. In your delightful climate, they may bolt early at this time of the year. They may extend longer in your "winter." This winter was so warm, that even up here in Fresno, with 2 days of freeze, caulifower went straight to flower.

Mark's first SFG - Page 9 Empty Kohlrabi on second year

Post  markqz 4/21/2022, 8:45 pm

Kohlrabi, at least this purple variety, starts to grow secondary bulges after the first year. Why did I let it go so long? Well, for awhile it was the best looking thing in the box ...

Mark's first SFG - Page 9 G1iZw1U

The "bulge" was tasty, BTW.

Mark's first SFG - Page 9 Empty Lawn to Garden

Post  markqz 4/27/2022, 11:17 pm

My dream was to have front yard boxes that would be at least somewhat attractive but also grow food. This plan hasn't worked out as well as I planned, but this year I have hope.

Mark's first SFG - Page 9 YgYLiDb

In this picture are 3 tomato plants, two cauliflowers, 4 squash plants, kohlrabi, onions, peas, lemon grass, and lots of nasturtium. Behind everything as a back-drop are walking stick kale. We'll see.

Shocked I'm guessing the 4 summer squash are going to be encouraged to fall forward? That should be rather attractive for a front yard.

You know, I think they sold me the wrong seeds. It really comes out more like broccoli than cauliflower.

You're way ahead. The Cherkokees I planted this year are only doing foliage. I do have a lot of green Snow Fairies coming along. I also have some sad, stunted ground cherries that technically have husks -- I didn't have a square for them in time!

lol! 

Much like cucumbers do.  One time I look and seed a one-inch cucumber and make a mental note that it has to be watched.  The next time I look at it, it is 8" long!  How did it do that? Shocked

Last weekend I had an "Asian salad" that had raw zoodles. It was rather refreshing. I know the dressing had a lot to do with it being tasty but I could do a lighter version.
