This week, I am making a comparison. I want to see how much my Chinese vegetable garden has grown in two weeks. For those of you newer folks, my old boss (and still friend) gave me a bunch of seeds that he brought back from Taiwan. I planted some early on while the garden was indoors, but the rest of the seeds were planted in a well perforated kiddie pool in the back yard (separate from the rest of the garden). Here is what it looked like two weeks ago:
and here is what it looks like today:
That is some pretty good growth over only two weeks. I also learned (somewhat) what the vegetables are. To the left, I already new that's Bok Choy. At the top is a leaf lettuce that has a slightly bitter aftertaste (it's quite good). At the bottom is another leaf vegetable which is purple and green that I haven't tried yet. To the right is a vegetable that apparently translates to "hollow stem." I will learn how to pick it and cook it up soon. I am looking forward to the cooking lesson. Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
