Camden Crops

I took a bunch of volunteers out in Camden last week to clean up our garden at 3rd and Beckett Street. A surprising number of crops survived the snow this winter, and we harvested several pounds of rutabagas and kohlrabi.

Unfortunately, when I took the kohlrabi home to cook, it was woody and hollow inside. I guess our little over-wintering experiment didn't quite pan out.

The green cabbage is still going strong, looking a little ratty, but edible (as soon as it heads up). The spinach survived, along with the mustard greens, though the latter is starting to bolt so we pulled it.

And of course, the kale. Good old reliable.
