While I wasn't looking

Look what grew! I don't mean to brag--and I shouldn't, because I had pretty much nothing to do with it except for giving it water and a little fertilizer--but isn't this the most perfect little specimen of a vegetable you've ever seen?

Why don't the insects like kohlrabi? One row away, they're making a hash of my mustard greens.

Here's what's ripe right now:

• Sugar snap peas
• English peas
• Asparagus
• Arugula
• Chard
• Collards
• Carrots
• Lettuce
• Beets
• Sorrel
• Mustard greens
• Cabbage (green and red)
• Green beans (in greenhouse)
• Wax beans (in greenhouse)
• Purple sprouting broccoli (just about done)
•Lacinato kale (also just about done)
