Great germination

It did take a while to germinate, but every seed is growing. I even transplanted them to a different row in my garden when they were a few inches tall and they are thriving. I can't wait for my first harvest which will be in a few days. Thank you!

A new treat

I tried this this year with some misgiving, but I am glad I did. I served this lightly steamed and stir fried. Both ways were excellent. A new must for my garden. I was a little leery about the texture of the leaves, but cooked it was good.
