Planting Update - Kohlrabi and Pak Choi

I planted some kohlrabi today.  The variety is called winner.   I have never grown kohlrabi before so this will be a learning experience for me.    This was requested by the buyer for the Riverside Food Cooperative.  She wants to include kolhrabi in the monthly produce box.  
This variety grows light green bulbs that weigh about 18 oz when mature and will be ready in 45 days.

I also planted a couple varieties of Pak Choi.    Joi Choi which has white stems and dark green leaves and Mei Qing Choi which has light green stems and leave.  Pak Choi tastes somewhere between and mild cabbage and spinach.   You leaves can be eaten raw in salads, but its best when briefly cooked.  They will be mature enough to harvest in around 55 days
