The update is here! (I’m saying this like I’ve POSTED other updates to see if I can fool you. How’s it working?)
Right now we’re getting about 16 oz of leaf lettuce and several radishes a week, and we’re growing enough bok choy to open a small Chinese restaurant. I’m looking forward to harvesting the spinach next!
The bulb onions are taking forever, which we expected. So are the carrots, which we didn’t. I WANT BABY CARROTS!
The nasturtiums and marigolds are coming in nicely, though we haven’t had any real bug problems anyway. Something likes the bok choy, but only a little bit, so I’m okay with sharing. Plus, it’s the bok choy. We have PLENTY.
When we were out watering last week, Logan, my ever-vigilant son, pulled up several of the head lettuce shoots thinking they were weeds. Oh well, they went very nicely in the afternoon salad.
My only concern at the moment is the broccoli. It’s looking a bit stringy and anemic. Waiting to see if broccoli start off as gangly youth before they grow into strapping young stalks.
That’s all for now! Stay tuned for the next in the series! Because I’m going to make it a series! Honest!
