How to make a vegetable garden. (Vegetable gardening for beginners.) One week after discovering that the spinach is sick, here is the field.
If left unattended, the spinach bed will be affected by disease, causing the leaves to gradually turn yellow. So, this time, we will harvest all of it to prevent further progression.
We harvest spinach by cutting the base with scissors.
This concludes the cultivation of spinach. (Spinach cultivation completed.)
The middle bed is growing arugula (rocket) and “Bekana". Bekana is a member of the Chinese cabbage family.
We harvest arugula before it becomes tough and woody when it bolts.
Harvesting the Bekana (Chinese cabbage family) when they seem ready to eat.
The last one is the bed of baby bok choy, leaf lettuce, and sugar snap peas.
Baby bok choy is ready for harvest, but since there’s too much to consume at once, I’ll harvest it in the next session.
Harvesting of leaf lettuce will take a little longer due to replanting. This bed also has purple komatsuna planted. (Komatsuna is Japanese mustard spinach.) Komatsuna accidentally mixed with the leaf lettuce seeds and grew larger unnoticed.
The sugar snap peas are growing well, extending along the hemp twine and support stakes.
This time, I harvested spinach, arugula, and Bekana, among others.
