    I did kind of an experiment and used rabbit manure tea on half the rows of lettuce, spinach, mustard, Swiss chard, but I do not see any difference in size.

    And now, Choy Sum.

    Once again, cheating - out of the hoop house. Aaand, as best as I understand it, there is no actual veggie variety known to the Chinese as Choy Sum. It's an ingredient and means something like "flower vegetable."

    We have had one variety for years and I haven't been happy with more recent purchases because the ones I have found were too tiny! Since many are hybrids and I saved seed, I may not have plants like what I purchased from Kitazawa or Evergreen, years ago. Oh well, it matters not at all at the dinner table ;). Furthermore, a Brassica rapa is, in Wikipedia words, "... a plant consisting of various widely cultivated subspecies including the turnip (a root vegetable); napa cabbage, bomdong, bok choy, and cime di rapa (leaf vegetables) ..." Seems like we can choose and call them what we want.

    :) Steve

    Lettuce, peas, yellow squash, zucchini, onions, strawberries, arugula, various herbs. The odd early-ripening blackberry. Asparagus every once in a while, but I've left quite a few stalks to leaf out.

    Dug up potatoes today. Some Yukon gold, some blues. Looking forward to some fragrant, tasty creaminess after roasting with fresh red onions.

    That's a POW Mary!
    I can't believe you already have raspberries, mine are just about 6" tall.

    I have to edit this to say mine are actually about a foot high. :rolleyes:
    But I'm pretty sure they were only 6" yesterday... :p
