Boc Choy

I'm a little happy to report that the Boc choy is growing well ( thanks Robin, glad I waited)  I might have to take the rest of them all up soon...these were the poorest looking specimens..I took up today just to see how they were doing ...I'm sure the rest are much better...I'm going to just do a quick shrink on the rest of them for the freezer soon.

I was running water on these to soak the dirt out of the bottoms..
I  tried to show the paper cups that I made to put the seeds in were still somehow still attached in the dirt (do a close up and maybe you can see bits of the cup) :o) you can see the roots are very strong looking..some of the leaves were yellow and that's why I took them up.
I salteed them in some butter and olive oil and they still had a good taste...and these were the worst looking ones..

Ohh that looks good. I love boc Choy but have never tried to grow it. I guess it will be on my list for next year :)

Mrs Pickles..it was very gratifying being able to grow and eat it :o) My head got just a little bigger :o)

It's always good to see what the latest harvest is from your garden, Ginny. I'm glad it tasted good to you. I'm sure it tasted all the better knowing that you grew it yourself! :-)

Daisy, I feel like a kid that just discovered lollypops :o)
it's a great pleasure knowing I made the paper cups filled it with dirt planted the seed and to see the seed pop up ..then plant it in the garden and behold something I can eat :o) ( am I a drama queen? or what :o)

Boc Choy is a tough one for me. I just can't seem to get the timing down on when to plant them as they always bolt straight to seed. I will have to give them another try in next year's garden.

Mr H. I planted these in the Spring! It was my first time and I didn't know what I was doing :o( I guess it's dumb luck to really get a harvest :o).but it took until the fall to get it ..next time I'll just make it a fall garden.:o)
