I’ve tried growing kohlrabi for the last 3 years – no success. I’ve grown them before, though.
Yummy little veggies

I love kohlrabi and pay a fortune for them at the farmers market. It’s one of the things I wish I had more garden space for. And are those leaves you’re using for mulch? How is that working?

Hi Tim,

sorry I don’t spend too much time here any more. Life’s too short to deal with all the obvious spam, fake profiles, etc.

My garden is mostly under trees. In a way that’s nice in the hot TX summer. The downside is that it’s challenging to grow anything edible in the shade. We use leaves as compost and as mulch. Without mulch we’ll get a solid block of dried clay in a hurry during summer.

No problem, I just wondered if it worked and if it caused any problems. I didn’t have too many available options so I went with cardboard. It works great and I always have lots of it around. I’d prefer something more natural though.
