Cultivated for centuries in China, bok choy (also known as Pac Choi) is commonly found in many US markets today. This non-heading cabbage will grow quickly and can be ready for harvest in as little as 45 to 50 days. Also called Chinese cabbage, this cool weather vegetable can be planted in early spring after last frost, or in late summer/early fall in the garden. It resembles a white stemmed chard, but is more closely related to broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower. It has a light, sweet flavor and is excellent for stir-fry, soups, stews, or eaten raw in salads or vegetable trays. The stalks will take a little longer to cook than the leaves, so add the leaves later for best flavor. It's also a great tasting source of vitamins C and A, folic acid, beta carotene and some calcium. Plants can easily bolt (go to seed) in extremely hot weather or from stress (not enough water). Try some as an "edible landscape" in and around flower beds.

Traditionally a hard to grow vegetable in terms of constant care, this variety makes it easy. This dwarf cultivar produces 9” stalks of tasty celery, good for cooking or use fresh or your raw vegetable platters. For a more tender stalk, water frequently. Celery like about 1” of water per week. “Hilling up” is not necessary with this variety and it will tolerate partial shade to full sun. Space 7-9" apart.
This is an easy to grow vegetable. The greens have a mild cabbage-like flavor. It has large dark green crumpled leaves with an average height of 20-24". Grows best in moderately rich and moist garden soil. Space 18-24" apart.
Corn is a summer tradition and this variety will win rave reviews on the table. This
super-sweet premium bi-color will do best if planted 8-12” apart. Planting shorter, more
numerous rows, 30-36” apart will aid in pollination. Most gardeners recommend at least 4 shorter rows rather than 1 or 2 long ones. Apply a balanced fertilizer when the plants are
knee high and again when they tassel. Water regularly and the plants will reach 4-6’ in
height with good ear production. Plant corn on the north side of the garden so it doesn’t
shade the other vegetables. Plant another 4 rows 10 days later for more delicious corn.
The ears are ready to harvest when you crush a kernel with your thumbnail and the juice is milky white, and the silks are brown and dry at the end of the ear. Another method is to watch your crop every day and when half of your ears are showing a tiny bit of silk, har¬vest time will be in 21 days.
