Hi Songbird,

I LOVE cabbage, not the flavor free blue type.

I CAN'T STAND turnips. YUK! YUK! YUK!

Speaking of turnips, Burpee is bragging about there new
variety: Silky Sweet

https://www.burpee.com/vegetables/tu...-sweet-hybrid-
prod500775.html

Hmmmm: a sweet turnip. I would probably hurl.

bok choi may work if cabbage does not.

Chinese cabbage. 1 cup: glycemic load of 1. Perfect.
I am not finding the actual carbs as folk are doing that
fraudulant "net carb" garbage on it, but if it is
similar to regular cabbage, it woud be around 5 grams
per cup, which is also perfect.

I have to get some at the store and see how
it tastes.

Do these annoying pests go after Chinese cabbage too?

If you like Chinese cabbage, you might want to take a
look at a variety called Vitamina. It's fast-growing and
loves cool weather.

It's an upright-growing napa cabbage type I found at
Kitazawa seeds.

Nyssa, who would grow it more often if her neighbors
would help eat some of it, but they don't care much for
Asian vegetables


With enough Chinese/Napa cabbage you have the makings of
pots and pots of KimChi.

Mike


Kim chi is something I avoid. The smell of the stuff was
everywhere when I was in South Korea, especially in the
public washrooms.

I did have a Korean programmer on my team who loved homemade
kim chi. She said she and her husband liked it more than
a good steak.

Different strokes.

Nyssa, who still has a couple of pots outside growing small
lettuce and onions despite a few frost-filled nights


Hi Nyssa,

Whist in the military, those that were stationed in
Korea had a saying for when things went wrong: "in deep
Kim Chi". They also described a fermented fish head
sauce that the Vietnamese liked. As you said: different
strokes.

How much time did you get to spend in South Korea?
My main contact with South Korea is watching the
soaps on Viki. One has to know if Putzette ever
admitted she likes Putz. :-)

Cracks me up when they cuss and beep out the cussing
and they English translation pops up "my life is
terrible". Apparently they are sensitive to
what we think of them. I am also surprised at
how much English they use in their society.

Four business trips to South Korea spread over the late
'80s and early '90s. I was doing software for the Army
and had to go for acceptance testing and once I was on
hand as a software consultant during US-ROK joint exercises.

Nothing like the smell of an underground bunker during
those joint exercises. bleah!

Usually I was there for a week to ten days at a time. I
enjoyed the bol gogi but could do without the kim chi.

Nyssa, who always got stuck doing a ton of shopping for
all of my coworkers that took up any free time I might
have had
