Growing local


I buy seedling for three asian greens - short, medium and tall - and I can never remember which is which. Think this is Bok Choy. Such an incredibly useful green and grows well in the heat.

I do use them occasionally in stir fries to be sure, but I mainly just use it as a steamed green.

These look beautiful Lissa. I can see some lovely Stir Fry's coming up.

Some of the plantings in the other bed have rotted off in the heat from the last week, but this bed is still going strong.

Does it? Well that's a pleasant surprise! Being related to cabbages I figured they'd be best in cool weather. And cabbage white butterfly love them as they do Rocket, also a cabbage-relative.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.
