Greetings from Washington, DC! I meant to write this post before I hopped on the plane last Sunday but never got around to it. Yes, we're eating plenty of Asian greens this time of year. And as you can see, the slugs are becoming more active. Some of our greens are now showing signs of slug damage. Upon closer inspection, it is mostly the work of baby slugs. Great. I guess it's breeding season. Time to break out the sluggo again. I'm afraid it might be too late for the Napa cabbage by the time I get back.
The radishes are still tiny but decided to pick a few anyway. Jonathan still loves munching on them straight from the garden. I was afraid that he might have outgrown his taste for this humble veggie. Apparently not.
Finally, I love this Winter Density lettuce. It's sweet, crunchy and perfectly-sized for a single meal. Our lettuce is growing very well this year. The slugs are leaving them alone and the cool weather has kept them mild tasting.
