Rule #29: Experiment with gardening...even if it may seem like a long shot!
So excited right now!!!!!! So as many of you who read my blog know I was successful with forcing the Treviso radicchio last year and recently found out that I have to do the same to the Puntarelle type chicory in order for it to form the pods. I really didn't think it was going to work, but a few days ago my first pod started forming. I don't know if it will get as big and full of pods as the ones I have seen from Italy but I will keep the blog updated.
This is what my set up in the garage. It's nice and cold now for them. To the right is the Treviso and to the left is the Puntarelle
