Show and Tell Segment
On the show and tell segment, Greg and Travis show different ways to prepare and cook the strange-looking vegetable known as Kohlrabi. Greg has grown kohlrabi for around 5 to 6 years and loves to grow it because it is insect resistant, easy to grow, and quick to mature in the garden. When growing kohlrabi it has roots that grow right above the ground and Greg simply shears it off at the root. Next, he will take his knife so he can cut all the leaves off and then peels it like an apple. As the guys prepare it for cooking they like to use it as a substitute for cabbage and make coleslaw out of it. Travis mentions that it has a flavor profile similar to cabbage with the texture of a cucumber. The guys also discuss a little about the different cool flower varieties coming to the site next year.
Viewer Questions Segment
On the question and answer segment this week, the guys answer questions about using the seed trays to sow seeds, selling the products in the seed starting kits separately, and cedar rust issues on apple trees. Greg mentions that if you are having problems with seedlings growing it might be a fertility problem. Once you reach the leaf stage, you need to start applying a little bit of fertilizer to the plants. Travis explains that the additional items that are placed in the seed starting kits such as the soil and garden labels are bonus items that were added to the kit to make it complete. If we removed those items from the kit it would not change the cost or shipping price of the kit itself. Greg says that when cedar rust is on your apple trees the main host is if you have a cedar tree close around and it should be removed to help control the rust on your apple tree. However, if you can’t remove the trees you can also use Liquid-Cop to control the cedar rust on the trees.
