It's week two of Kohlrabi watch 2019. A quick recap: week zero saw the kohlrabi seeds treated to a hot water bath, and seeded into flats. Week one the baby kohlrabi emerged from the potting soil, each with two tiny heart shaped leaves. Week two, we can now see the very beginning of the first true leaf and each plant is at least 1/4 inch tall.
Even though it's been toe numbing cold, the bright sunny days have
warmed our high tunnels to almost 70F. Our high tunnels rely solely the sun for heat and energy, and regularly reach good growing temperatures even with partial clouds. And our greens are growing fast! The lettuce and the spinach in particular are visibly bigger from one day to the next. We're working hard to keep up with the spinach, it's regrowing almost as fast as we can harvest!
At markets: Spinach! This is the best time of year to enjoy spinach,
it's dark green, sweet, tender, and abundant! Perfect leafy green raw or cooked that we're craving after the dark winter. I'll be at Sheridan Market this Saturday, and look for Seth at Dupont on Sunday.
See you there!
