Royal Botanic Garden opens Veggie Village!
I was lucky to be in Toronto last week when the Royal Botanical Garden opened its new exhibit. Veggie Village is a look at how and why people grow their own vegetables with excellent examples of various garden styles. One of the coolest things is the "photo signs" where gardeners/visitors are encouraged to take photos of signs describing how to use vegetables in their kitchen. Here is a photo of Pak Choy - also known as Bok Choy as well as a recipe for cooking Baby Bok Choy.
Bok Choy - like cabbage- is a vegetable suitable for fall growth so these plants will be left in the ground over the next month or more for visitors to view. There is no additional charge for visiting Veggie Village at RBG.
