Step aside A-B-C! Now K-L-M is easier than 1-2-3!
To welcome the arrival of spring, our K-L-M trio of delicious and easy-to-grow All-America Selections (AAS) award-winning vegetables are performing extra duty as showy ornamentals in a raised salad table.
The salad table was built by the Pine Belt Master Gardeners and works great year-round for gardeners of all ages.
Kohlrabi Konan produces a bulbous stem that can be sliced or diced. This 2016 AAS winner can also be enjoyed up close for its out-of-this-world look.
Sandy is a 2015 AAS winner with lots of tasty, oak-leaf-type leaves on attractive, uniform, mounded plants that are disease resistant and slow to bolt.
