After I discovered my broccoli raab had bolted while we were away, I had to pull it up and plant something else in it’s place.
Luckily I have a bunch of seedlings growing in the greenhouse and indoors. Since it’s still a wee bit chilly out, I thought Chinese cabbage seemed like a good fit for the space. Even though we have 16 raised garden beds, I am trying to hold off on planting the rest of them for now. It’s hard, but I want to be able to maximize the space by planting a boatload of tomatoes, cucumbers and beans in the beds. If I fill them up with more cold weather crops now, I won’t have room when I set out the warmer crops in about another 3 weeks or so.
It’s a tough call, but I think it’s the right one for now.
Now, I suppose the question is, what am I going to do with all this Chinese cabbage when it’s ready to harvest? Ha! I guess I’ll have to cross that bridge when we get to it.
Unless YOU have some ideas of course!
