What's In Season
The broccoli is about ready as well.
I tend to get smaller crowns in the spring. The fall ones are usually twice this size. I've grown 'Bonanza' for the past couple of years and it has proven to be very reliable from germination to harvest. Unfortunately, I haven't seen this variety for sale lately and my seed stash is running low so this might be the last year I'll be growing it.
My 'Winter Density' lettuce was on the verge of bolting so I picked it. It has a slight bitter edge now but not too bad.
Finally, 'Hakurei' are my favorite turnips to eat. They are very mild, sweet and perfect simple steamed with a bit of butter or sauteed.
