Harvesting


I didn't plant as much Kohlrabi this year because I'm still learning what I can do with it and the best ways to preserve it. Last year, I learned that I enjoy it far more than I enjoy turnip. I'm sure some of you are asking "What the heck is Kohlrabi?" It's like a cross between Turnip and Cabbage. It's leaves are edible as well and can be cooked the same as beet greens or Chards. We jokingly call it the purple alien plant around here.


I harvested my first two Zucchini's yesterday. I have quite a few zucchini plants. I think I may attempt Zucchini pickles and Zucchini relish this year. It will be my first time preserving anything that isn't a jelly.


My carrots grew HUGE this year. This is probably the largest bunch of carrots I've ever grown. I planted them pretty early. 


This is the first year I actually enjoy/crave beets. I've never cared for them in the past. I still don't like them pickled but they are delicious sauteed.
