This tulip clusiana bud...
...opened on GBBD, a few hours after I'd posted. And another tulip joined it, that I could swear didn't even have a bud the day before!
The blossoms open each morning and close every evening. They look like little eggs from this angle.
There's only two, so far. I planted, um, seven--I think.
And on the evening of the 16th, after my Foliage Follow-Up post, I harvested all this! Sixteen cups!
Baby romaine, baby oakleaf, radicchio, curly endive, escarole and baby beet greens -- that's foliage you can eat!
And we did. Yum!
