Ahh more harvesting! While I was away for a few days my bokchoy, aka pac choi, BOLTED. As you can see in the pictures the stems did not bulk up as I thought they would, instead the stems grew in height and grew pretty yellow flowers. I attribute the bolting to the weather. It was very warm, then very cold.
The yellow flowers are delicious though! And the leaves are fantastic and taste incredibly like store bought bokchoy (but 100 times better).
How are your gardens coming along? Has anything bolted? Failures? What have you harvested?

One of my rainbow chard plants has bolted (the red one), but the other three yellowish-orange ones are still fine. Weird!
We’re harvesting lettuce, radishes, green onions, small carrots and the occasional strawberry. My kids are harvesting peas, even though they’re not supposed to yet, lol.
Oh wow! I wonder why only the red one has bolted…was it the change in temperature as well? Everything you’re growing sounds so yummmmmy! And sounds just like your average kid 😉
Beautiful! We’ve harvested radish so far. Everything else still has a long way to go. Patiently playing the waiting game 😉
Patience is so useful when you have a garden, haha! Radishes are usually the start to a great garden, I’m looking forward to hearing about your garden adventures. Happy growing!
So far it has just been radish, pak choi and salad (around 2kg or 10 supermarket bags of salad which I’m quite impressed with) but I am hindered by the lack of space although that’s the point of my whole blog so I can’t complain!
Your bok choi look great despite bolting so well done – my pak choi got ravished by slugs 😦
None of my pepper plants or onions made it this year, but everything else is coming along fairly well. I’ve harvested spinach, lettuce, and some herbs so far.
This is a nice looking plant. What do you do with it?
You eat it! You can boil it or fry it, and even eat it fresh just like it is. I suppose it’s similar to spinach or kale but more flavourful in my opinion 🙂 you should try some!

Definitely try to fit it in this fall. Thanks!
Gosh, y’all must live in really warm climates. My garden won’t be ready for harvest for weeks and weeks. We’ve had very hot then very cold weather as well. I’m on pins and needles to see how this year’s crop turns out.
