I was down there again this morning. I’ve put in all my Kohl Rabi, and again make sure you net them, otherwise the birds will have a feast. I’ve now started to weed all the beds systematically. I managed to get 3 done today, so I was very pleased. You can tell just by looking at my hands that I’ve been gardening, not only are they very dry, but there’s soil under all my nails and I’ve broken 4 nails. They don’t grow very long anyway. Must get the hand cream out.

  1. Sounds good! I always garden without gloves too and my hands get a mess but you just cant get the right feel for the soil with gloves on. lol

  2. Hi Claire, I was wondering wether to grow the Kohl Rabi, but not sure how you eat that stuff 🙂 What can you cook with it??

    • I peel it and then cut into 1 inch cubes. Toss is salt, pepper and oil and roast in the oven gas 5/190 for about 1 hour. sometimes it takes a little longer. Add some crisp pancetta to it. Yum.
