The First Harvest!

All I have to say is, "I GREW THIS!!!"













*Crookneck Squash, Cucumber, Purple Kohlrabi, and Radishes*

For those of you who asked what Kohlrabi is--it is my favorite vegetable of all time! It's hard to explain, but it tastes and has the texture of peeled broccoli stem, but just a little bit more cabbage-ey (pretty sure that isn't a word, but it is now because I said so). You can eat it raw or cooked, but my favorite way to eat it is raw, sprinkled with a little salt. YUM!

Nice harvest! What's your favorite way to cook up the squash? I've been gifted with some over the last few weeks but I'm not in love with it. I'm hoping there is a better way to prepare it.

Wasn't there some song with Kohlrabi in it? I didn't know it was a vegetable, though. Interesting. And well done, you!

That is awesome! I love kohlrabi, but never seen a purple one before.

Every year we all (dh, me, ds#1, ds#2) pick a new veggie to try and grow. This year, coincidentally, ds#2 picked kohlrabi! We've not harvested ours yet though...dh is planting it for the fall as most cabbage type plants do better in the fall here.
