I’m a pretty big fan of cole crops. Probably the easiest to grow is kohlrabi. It looks like a mint-green above-ground turnip, and has a milder flavor than broccoli.
I planted out seedlings on May 8th and they were ready for harvest yesterday, less than five weeks later. Quick turn-around, and I like that. They’re usually picked when they’re 2-4″ in size. Any bigger and they’ll be tough. You can however pick them earlier and smaller.
My wife was kind enough to make stuffed kohlrabi with a sour cream sauce. Yuh-um.
The spring crops keep coming. More nice lettuce…
And five more meals of broccoli for the freezer.
