|Chinese Cabbage, 11/23/2012|
|Picked for Thanksgiving, 2011|
I cut off all the little leaflets except the one shown in the middle of this shot. Put the rest of those leaf thingies in my compost:
Where they promptly rotted from too much moisture. End of story, right? Not so fast. The old root with the one attached leaflet went back into a pot. And did well:

|Still growing, 2/17/2012|
Or I could cut it back another time and use these leaves for a salad. It has a nice seed head forming, yet the cole crops are notorious for cross pollinating, meaning I might not get chinese cabbage from the seed. Maybe I will cut it up for trying to clone some of the pieces. Yes, that might extend its life a little bit more. Long live the Chinese Cabbage.
