Double purple orach is a winner!
Topic: orach

Today I harvested a huge double purple orach.  Most of the plants are less than 8 inches tall, but this one was four feet!  It wasn't bolting, either.  It's normally used as a salad green, but because most of the leaves were so huge I sauteed it with a little bit of butter.  Cooking made it even more purple.  Mild and delicious and a gorgeous presentation!  I will definitely grow this again.

I bought the seed from from Container Seeds. 

Also I harvested a head of Munchkin Broccoli.  True to its name, it was a small head, but a friend told me to expect side shoots to grow up with more heads.
