This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

harvest whats this
I harvested a few greens today. I wish I knew what they were. The enormous feathery-leaved plant at the left tastes a bit like arugula. It has a big thick white root. The dark green round leaved one I don't know either. These two came in a mix of fall greens. I do know the bright green leaves -they are a broad-leaved escarole.

I just read that Tatsoi can be harvested from under the snow. That's good to know because that were the last on mine are right now.

And I have LOTS of mizuna in the fridge right now. I can now look up recipes - or just continue eating piles of it.

Yep, mizuna and tatsoi. Tatsoi can be used basically like baby bok choy. And mizuna, well, I only like it as an accent in salads, but it sure is hardy and easy to grow!
