Good Season'n With Herb'n Renewal

  (Lancaster, Kentucky)
Tak'in the guesswork out of seasoning your food!

And, I thought we were farmers!

But, by looks of the beautiful flowers on our baby Pak Choy, I'd say we failed the test! lol

I had one of those brilliant moments this winter while going through the seed catalogs.  Heck, why not introduce something new to our 100% homegrown farmers market...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!  So, I ordered the seeds and planted them. :)

At first I thought what the heck, it said 40 days to harvest and it's been 6 days already...nothing.  How could these things possibly be ready for the market?  Well, then they just seemed to grow over night!!!  Who knew!  Certainly not us herb farmers.  EEK!  Our herbs are nice steady growers and don't go bananas over night!

We, or I should say "I" learned a good lesson...stick with what you know how to grow.  But, I have to admit that the yellow flowers are beautiful and they (hopefully) will continue to bloom all summer long...even if we can't enjoy the anticipated stir fry! 

This is me crawling back to my herb garden with my eyes towards the ground...except for a quick peek at those pretty yellow Pak Choy flowers!  I love farming or maybe I should say "herbing!"

BTW, please help us become America's favorite farmers market by voting for the Bluegrass Farmers' Market in Lexington, KY.  It's Lexington's only 100% homegrown/produced market and I promise we really do have farmers who know what they are doing with their veggies.

Pak choy does grow really fast, we had about three meals out of it before it grew up and bolted. You can save the seeds for next year. Also, my chickens LOVE it.

Thanks so much, I feel a bit better now. I could send you plenty for your chickens! lol I have no idea what I was thinking...sort of a DUH moment. Best to stick to what we know best, growing herbs!
