We tried a new vegetable early last week, kohlrabi. Here it's sliced with a little salt. Dean really liked it.
I've read it described as similar broccoli stem but Dean thought it was more like a mild radish. I tried it too. It was okay, nothing to seek out.
We bought 3 for $1 at the Farmer's Market.
And we finally have a ripe tomato! Son#3 wins the prize. It was the long and twisty Opalka paste tomato. We had a great time watching it go from green to yellow to orange to (after bringing it inside and leaving for the weekend) bright red today.
Now I need a little french bread to make some bruschetta.
In the other hand is a nice head of broccoli. For some reason all the plants were planted together but now we're finally getting the spring broccoli 1 head at a time every few weeks. I'm surprised no more than one plant bolted. Not very hot this year I guess.
Tomatoes are growing well but talking their sweet time hitting mass production. I think I promised Son#2 that he could sell them by his birthday. We're just not moving that quickly this year. I hope we get a nice supply before frost (Sept. 23 around here). I hope they don't overwhelm me just as the apples come in.
