Thanks to the warm winter, our kale was bursting out of the garden, so we enjoyed one of our annual rites of spring: harvesting, blanching, and freezing kale.
In the past, N. has enjoyed washing, weighing, and bagging the greens after they've been blanched. This year he did a huge portion of the picking. He's a really hard worker and we had fun making our way through the garden together.
Tim, N., and I are ambitious and enthusiastic but not always successful gardeners. Kale, however, we have totally mastered. It's not fussy, and it loves our climate. What luxury to eat homegrown greens nearly every day, year round!
2009, 2010, and 2011!
