My wife and I started gardening in Fukuoka (Japan) in 2003. There was nothing but muddy clayey sloping land. At the beginning we made several structure such as steps and paths, and planted turf, fruit trees, roses, herbs etc.
In 2010, we visited several famous English gardens, including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Mottisfont Abbey Garden and Hidcote Manor Garden. We were shocked by the glory of those gardens. Since then, we have been trying to make little but glorious gardens by ourselves.
TODAY'S HARVEST OF KOHLRABI (コールラビ、今日の収穫)
We harvested purple-colour kohlrabi this morning.
The size of their swollen stems was a bit smaller than a tennis ball
(a diameter of ca. 6 cm).
The taste and texture of kohlrabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter.
