Pok choi in the square foot garden

042113 win winHere’s a little something for you to consider growing in your SFG’s. It’s pok-choi-a popular Asian green. This particular variety is called “Win-win” from Johnny’s seeds. There’s many varieties available, but our family loves this the most of all those we’ve tried. Delicious in stir-fry’s, it can also be used as part of a mixed salad with other types of greens. It’s easy to grow-especially in cooler temperatures. If you want to grow it in hotter weather, you’ll have to water it twice as much and the pests have a tendency to attack during the warmer months. I only grow this in spring and fall. In the SFG system, you plant 4 of these per square. I’ve written much about how much money you can save by growing things at home. I think everyone believes that. The price for this in your organic produce section of the store will run about $2.50 per head. And those aren’t quite as big as these and certainly not nearly as fresh. Last of all is the quality and taste of your food out of your backyard grown in perfect soil. I haven’t spent hardly any time on this point, but the composition of your soil has a lot to do with the taste of whatever you’re growing. This stuff is great…give it a shot-you won’t be sorry.

      Your seminar tonight was fantastic! I thought I knew a lot about gardening but next to you…what can I say? Are you a master gardener? I loved your enthusiasm and presentation style. I’ve been around for a while and I recognize great teaching ability, and you’ve got the gift my friend. I am interested in attending one of your 3 hour workshops. How do I find out about those? You made it all so simple-and you did it in by kind of telling a story..thanks again
