IMG_3825 Measuring over 3 1/2 feet wide, and with over 14 pounds of nutrient-dense white stems and shiny dark green leaves, this  head of bok choy cabbage is a crisp and flavorful reminder that sometimes the best thing you can do is just let something be. In a bed of Asian greens long since abandoned to witchgrass and weeds, a few stalwart bok choy successfully staked their claim.

One plant in particular far outstripped the rest, and this beauty is something to see. It is a testament to the potential for quality and vigor that all of our veggies contain and desire to express, and that they will express if given the proper nutrition and growing conditions. So here's to you bok choy, thanks for showing us what you can do.
