Harvests are beginning to ramp up now. This week I collected the first non-leafy vegetable, kohlrabi. It's a sign that more cole crops are on the way, very soon. I picked a Grand Duke kohlrabi -
And two days later a Kolibri kohlrabi -
Both bulbs added up to just under two pounds. The leaves went straightaway to the rabbits, who practically inhale them. I like kohlrabi best raw, although it makes a decent soup and is not bad fried like hashbrown potatoes. It's a nice addition to a salad, like a cucumber, mild and fresh tasting.
I also picked just under 1 1/2 pounds of spinach and a pound of lettuce. It's been a good year for spinach, 5 1/2 pounds so far, all of it planted last October. Spring-planted spinach rarely matures before bolting but this year might be an exception. I'll never turn down more spinach.
