The food of the week is cole crops, because they constitute all of the harvest. I picked two small heads of broccoli, most likely Green Magic, totaling 12 ounces. The broccoli are not so nice this year. First something ate small circular holes in the leaves, then they got hit with cabbage worms, which shred the leaves. A spraying of Bt ended the cabbage worm infestation, but the damage was done and the heads are smallish. The other thing not shown is a Grand Duke kohlrabi, just over a pound, which I sliced up and dipped into ranch dressing for snacks.
Cabbage is looking better than the broccoli, although the heads are not huge. The cabbage on the left is Point One, a caraflex cabbage, a first for me, and on the right is Golden Acre, an old variety. They added up to just over 2 pounds of cabbage. The Point One makes a very dense head, which tends to keep the cabbage worms out. It also has a nice flavor. I'll be growing it again.
Both heads went into my first attempt at making kraut. I think I see some bubbles forming. . .
Also the first cauliflower, Snow Crown, weighing half a pound.
To see what other gardeners are getting this time of year, head on over to Our Happy Acres and check it out.
