The lemongrass got harvested this week and went from a big, beautiful, leafy clump…

to a stump.

Most of the harvest went up for sale, but some pieces were saved to make up pots we’ll sell in the spring.

Lemongrass doesn’t like the cold, but overwise, it is easy to grow and super forgiving.

So if you like lemongrass tea or soups, or want to be fancy schmancy, or want to grow something you can ignore all but one day of the year, I recommend giving lemongrass a try. Seriously, I put mine in the ground after frost and 100% ignored it until the evening we were getting a freeze and I harvested it (in my pajamas with a flashlight because if you’re going to harvest something last minute, you want to make sure it is as very last minute as possible). No water, no fertilizer, no weeding, no nuthin, and I got a big bag of lemongrass in my freezer now.

So if I can do it, you can do it.

We’ve got some beautiful purple radishes growing… that look just like cherries growing out of the soil! (If you ignore the completely different leaves).

And oh my gosh, look at the size of these celery leaves! Despite what that leaf is trying to say, these are “typical” stalk celery plants, not the only-leaves celery plants.
