In this article, I will teach you how to make the most of your harvest. What Goes In The Fridge? Some vegetables will go in the fridge, and some must be left over the counter; most people throw everything in the fridge, which reduces the lifespan of those vegetables. Broccoli, cauliflower, sprouts, cucumbers, and peppers go in the fridge. Vegetables such as mushrooms must be put in a paper bag, or else they will get moldy. Lettuce and leafy vegetables should be put in an airtight bag before being put in the fridge as they are more prone to moisture loss;…

Asparagus (Asparagus Officinalis) is a perennial plant that has lived for many years. It can grow to over a meter high, sometimes a meter and a half, and as wide as a meter in some conditions. There are several different types of asparagus available for sale, but the requirements for cultivation are very similar. The most commonly grown are Asparagus densiflorus and Asparagus setaceus. Less well known but equally attractive, are the older strains of Asparagus pyramidalis and falcatus, for example. Preparation Growing asparagus requires patience and a long preparation period. It is best to sow the seeds indoors in the spring (early March). Asparagus seeds are about 3 mm in size, so sowing them is very easy.

Garlic Harvest

Timing is everything, they say and with garlic harvest, that is especially true. But since the crop is hidden underground, how do you know when this edible allium is ready – when it is just the right moment to ensure a well-formed head that will also store well through the winter and beyond? Like fortune-telling, it is all in reading the leaves, apparently. When to harvest garlic–and how: Don’t let its relatives mislead you; garlic’s close cousin, the onion (Allium cepa), is more adaptable about its ideal moment to be lifted and cured. You can simply let the tops (leaves) die down right in place, delaying digging a bit to when it is convenient. Or, if you are in a rush, move things along (assuming the bulbs are well-formed) by knocking over the foliage to urge the plants toward their finale. With garlic, though, waiting until all the leaves go…

Sowing and growing peppers on your own are not as difficult as you might imagine. Usually, pepper plants don’t do so well in soil. It is best to grow them in pots or a greenhouse.

What’s the most exciting moment in K-dramas? Not that romantic confession or that passionate kiss. Neither when the main romantic leads turn out to be half-siblings nor when the killer is revealed to be the main protagonist. But, rather, it’s those yummy foods that keep our stomach growling and growling to no end. So, if you fancy the idea of growing your own Korean vegetables, here’s what you should start with. #1. Korean Bunching Onions You must have seen or heard about purplette onions – these mini purple-red skinned onions. Korean bunching onions, also known as Jjokpa, are a bit like purplette onions, although they do not have that deep purple color. They are more a cross between shallots and green onions. They have thick and hollow (without forgetting yummy) green stems, leaves with a mild onion flavor and greenish-white flowers that have a more intense flavor. This vegetable that…
