garden 2010-stir fry greens
I froze 8 gallons of the greens and kept a couple meals out for the week. All total from the hot tub full of greens we got about 30 meals or significant portions of meals.Not too shabby for a 4x4 plot or there about. After pulling the greens I worked the soil and direct seeded some "tiny tom" tomatoes that were gifted to me and carrots in it.
The greens were nice but not something I would want an entire hot tub full again any time soon. I am not a huge green eater to begin with and one of the greens in the mix was stringy when stir fried. I actually preferred them in a salad mix or as a wilted green dish rather than in a stir fry or on their own The mix also had too many mustard greens in it. We grow them on their own and not exactly something I would think of in an Asian stir fry mix. I should have planted a month or so earlier than I did and then cover on the coldest nights. These were planted mid march and were going to seed already, I think if I planted earlier we would have probably doubled the production from the plot of them. I do think they would make a good GH crop for over wintering so will probably try a small plot of them in there this fall.
