June 25, 2012 -- bulbing fennel

I had harvested this fennel for my daughter, and put it in a vase of water to keep it fresh, when I realized this could be my windowsill arrangement today.  The fennel foliage is so beautiful and the "bulbs" so interesting. 

Truth be told, I have no idea whether or not I'm harvesting this at the right time, and I'm only half certain that the bulbs are the modified stems just above the roots.  A friend served me a chicken dish with fennel bulbs in it last year and that prompted me to grow "bulbing fennel" this year. Here are what I believe to be the "bulbs"  up close.
