No, this isn't the ginger growing in my garden, but it is from the same source. Patchworks Farm was selling some of their first crop of Pennsylvania-grown ginger today! I had to pick up at least one stalk...or rhizome....not sure how to identify my purchase. But it did come with the more familiar ginger rhizome root, plus the stalks and leaves. One of the women working the stand told me that while the leaves are best as a garnish she likes to run the fibrous stalks through her juicer - something I never considered.
