Growing local

My first tiny pak choi are now thriving, even after a grasshopper attack. I’ve been picking regularly for salads and stir fries. These were actually from a Woolies giveaway.

They look absolutely beautiful, I could even use that happily in one of my flower arrangements

Looking good

I find that pak choi takes forever  to get to a good seedling size but the  seeds do sprout quickly which is good.

Would suggest  letting grow on without harvesting  as when get to a certain size can nearly watch them grow before your eyes  and if let a couple flower will get yellow flowers which attract bees  and if let the seed pods develop  harvest the seeds for next crop but can take some time to mature and seed pod dry for harvest but will get plenty of seed.
