Flowering Bok Choy

Today, I was pondering on harvesting some Bok Choy and adding it to my favorite cabbage and green bean recipe. However, when I looked out my window I got a surprise. My Bok Choy which I had inter-planted with my carrots had bolted and gone to flour during the week. I, actually, have never seen Bok Choy flour before. I guess I have always harvested and eaten it before the weather warmed up enough for it to bolt.  This really demonstrates just how much bok choy is a nice cool weather crop. It has only been intermittently warm, and by warm I mean high 70s low 80s, and consistently for a couple weeks.

By the way, if you happened to notice the native on one of the flowers in the picture, have no fear, the poor bee was just on motionless by the cool low 50s weather this morning.  When the weather warmed up the poor thing just flew away.
