Late Fall Greens
In mid-October, I transplanted some tatsoi and Shanghai bok choy into the garden. When the snow storm hit a week later, I covered the bed with some plastic and forgot about it.
A few days ago, I uncovered the bed and noticed that the plants had actually grown a decent amount. Most Asian greens are pretty hardy so I think these will fair well into December. Hopefully, they will continue to grow despite the fact that our highs are only in the 40's and 50's for the next few days.
I love this variety of bok choy and so do the slugs.
Tatsoi is also one of our favorite Asian greens. The leaves are rather fragile and its water content is pretty high so I try not to overcook it.
