Johnny's Seeds "Green Pac" (Bok Choi) Planted in an AG Classic 7 on August 19.
I periodically harvest individual leaves before they become mature "Bok Choi" shapes... perhaps in a week or so from now when it will resemble a messy deep-green jungle. I'll try to post a photo of a pre-harvest jungle when it's ready.
I saute with garlic and olive oil. A healthy delight!
The "jungle" before harvesting:
There's still plenty of healthy foliage left in the AG after the harvest, but the photo didn't come through. The harvest in a very large pan:
Sauteed in olive oil with garlic. This is why one AG is not enough!
I only use AG's pods if they came included with my AG machine purchase. Part of the fun (for me, at least) is trying out different seeds. I love to browse the online seed catalogs and spend a few bucks on what I hope will be my next great find.
Also, AG's pods have the "correct" number of seeds in them. So I find that the seedlings look a bit lonely. I like to put in 6+ seeds, so I can enjoy looking at my plantings earlier. I'm sure that the consequence is that I need to terminate my greens earlier, but (to me) that's all the more fun!
Yes! I ordered and am awaiting some different seeds to grow from Park. I love to try custom grows that are not the 'usual' every once in a while.Some are successes, many are fails. Nevertheless , the process is fun.
I don't remember when I planted these in my Ultra. But I did a dump-and-refill on August 25.
On the left is Johnny's Seeds Dragoon. On the right is Park Seed Jericho.
Except for the color, they seem identical in taste, texture and growth speed. Although they're both approaching the time when I'll terminate them, the Dragoon shows more new leaves than does the Jericho. Since the Jericho was developed in Israel, it might be more heat-tolerant than the Dragoon.
All wonderful greens gardens! I love the variety, and that you have so many gardens of them at once. Fast edibles are such fun. Also thanks for the comparison review on the Dragoon and Jericho. I was wondering that myself.
