Choy sum grows like a weed here in Central Florida. It has won in the contest against kai lan (Chinese broccoli). I will only grow choy sum from now on, especially since I will have a billion seeds!
The build up of winter storm Grayson froze us good. After four nights of subfreezing all-night temperatures, all the plants are dead, dying, or hybernating. It got down to 25 here.
I am always incredulous when it frosts or freezes here in Florida. It just doesn't seem like it's possible, but it often happens here in Central Florida. Hence, we really have to watch the weather forecast so we are ready for it.
The lemons are ready! Now comes the incessant juicing and freezing of this liquid gold. Now begins the drooling over lemon meringue pie. Now begins the obsession over lemon bars and cookies. I love my lemon tree.
Sad story. I've been out finishing up the mowing of the pastures. We need to force a little more green and even out the hillocks.
If you were worried about the lemons, then let me put you at ease. I was worried Hurricane Irma would pull all the green citrus right off the trees, but here at least, it didn't.
So, it's getting to be the height of summer now. They say you can't grow tomatoes down here in Central Florida in the summer. Apparently the wild tomatoes didn't get that memo.
Mmmmff, wild blackberry scones...to die for.
It was time to harvest some bok choy. I think I will grow some bean sprouts so we can make egg foo yung.
