First ginger harvest

We were out of ginger to cook with, and decided to see if our home-grown ginger was ready to be used. After all, the clump was about 8 months old and had expanded quite a bit. So, spade in hand, we went a-digging.

Our first clump of young ginger!

It wasn’t a clump that you’d throw a parade for, but it was our first – not to be scorned – young ginger. After all, it grew from one of these thumb-sized pieces of ginger below:

Cut pieces of ginger rhizomes with growing buds.

Pretty cool, huh? :) I can’t wait to see what an older clump will look like!
