I had my first kohlrabi out of the garden yesterday. The thing was huge - a full 1.1kg (although that variety can grow up to 10kg and still be tender). Enough for a meal for four. I nearly cried, I was so happy. My favourite food in all the world, even better than my mom's pea soup.
I think the rest of the kohlrabis could do with more fertilizer. They aren't nearly as big as they should be. I'll have to look into getting loads more manure for next year. I'm getting a pretty good idea of what crops I should be concentrating on by now. Kohlrabi, lettuces, rocket, spring onions, kale, tomatoes in pots or hanging baskets, courgettes, green beans up the fence and maybe some peas. And a couple of carrots, because they are nice. Anything else is pretty much wasted. Okay, maybe one of those strawberry tons.
Basically, these are the things I eat the most of, that thrive best in my garden, that I can't get in a supermarket and/or that are so much fresher, tastier and cheaper when I grow them myself. Chinese leaves were a waste of space (the variety was loose-leafed and tasted very grassy in salads - urk). I reckon I have had about £30 worth of rocket from one bag of seeds I bought for £1.29. I do not understand why the stuff is so expensive in supermarkets, considering how easy it is to grow.
