When we were in Korea, I was very inspired of how Koreans doesn't waste any piece of land. They utilize every inch of it for flowers and vegetables. They even plant veggies under the bridge! So when we came back here, I started planting vegetables. We started a very small plot first then this year, I decided to expnd it by tilling the side of our yard and make it into a vegetable garden as well.
The tomatoes are now blooming too and I harvested 7 kohlrabi already and pickled them.
I mean who wouldn't like fresh spinach and kale to cook? This is my first time growing kale and love how it is a low maintenance green but very healthy. Two years ago, I never give kale a glance at the store but I read an article about its health benefits so I tried it and thought we could get used to the taste and we did. I like it because when you cok it, it doesn't get saggy or slimy.
I picked some of the beans yesterday to entice my daughter to eat. She was running a fever and usually she won't eat when she is sick but I told her that I got her some green beans and sure enough, she ate! Freshly picked green beans taste so much better than store bought, that's for sure. If you don't have a space to put a garden, try container gardening.
Today, my daughter wants some garden salad so I picked some lettuce and harvest some kale since it is getting thick again. I have given away a bag or two of this kale to a friend and it just keep growing.
