    Default Well... just had my first proper harvest :)

    ... and noticed that my Pak Choi (which is ace, BBQ'd - bit of olive oil rubbed over and black pepper on!) seems to be bolting? I didn't think it'd happen, but I was wrong and you lot were right! I'll sow some more in a couple months I think, still really nice.

    Should I let a couple run to seed (how large are the flowers of pak choi?) - they're inbetween my turnips, which seem to be around golf ball size, so looking forward to pulling them in a couple weeks. Never had turnip before so really looking forward to them.

    Had some salad, raddish (quite small - about marble size) - scarlot globe, not hot but still nice! Young lettuce thinnings and some young pak choi in the salad too + rocket in the salad too. That was our first proper "go out in the garden and properly harvest" something - man, it was an amazing feeling. Noticed my mangetout are flowering too, which was nice seeing as they've been constantly barraged by slugs.

    It does feel good, doesn't it? Last night we had our own spuds, mangetout peas and spinach.
