It's the first day of spring, the sun was out, and I got to harvest some goods today.
The first of my bok choi, and all the bunching onions I planted last October. The bok choi was started from seed in January. A mere 90 days later, it's delicious! Anyone looking for immediate gratification should give Asian greens a try. I grew these in barrels and had zero problems with pests and slugs (except #%$!$& cats). They will be a container plant for me going forward.
As for the onions? Well, they might go on my "not worth the trouble" list. They took up space in the garden for 6 months, were a pain in the rear to pull and clean, and the difference between them and store-bought is unnoticeable. This year, I'm going to give shallots a try. I think I will let the other members of the onion family go.
