Inspired by Daphne's wonderful harvests of Asian greens... I decided to request my own copy of the Kitazawa Seed catalog, "Your Source for Asian Vegetable Seeds" and take a look...
Look at her tatsoi growing in her hoop tunnel! Aren't her greens just beautiful?
Since I've started making green smoothies, I've become very interested in different greens. I hope to grow lots of greens this upcoming gardening season.
Some Asian greens that I'm considering (based on Daphne's success over the past couple years) include:
Do you have a favorite green? So far... I love swiss chard, spinach, kale and arugula... and salad greens too!
Hoop House Report
temperature inside the HH at 3:30pm: 55.2 degrees F
termparature outside: 12 degrees F with bright sunshine!
I opened up my hoop house this afternoon. It had gotten up to 85 degrees all covered up with the heat lamp on. So I took off the sleeping bag cover and turned off the light... and gave all the plants a good watering.
All the plants look good! Well, the arugula has gone to seed...
