frozen greens kale

All the greens are frozen now. No more escarole or bok choy. Only my little patch of kale is still edible.

  • We still have no snow but the ground is rock hard here as well. New bok choy will be growing in no time. I can almost taste the sesame oil, garlic, ginger, soy & bok choy already…

  • My kale is also the only edible thing left. I haven't a clue as to how long it will last in the ground since I haven't grown it before.

  • My kale gets kind of mushy tasting sometimes mid way through the winter. But sometimes I've found delicious kale in the spring. I think it depends on the variety and the weather/snowcover.

  • Just a few miles west from you, Kathy, I have over a dozen varieties of greens growing outdoors, up until today aided only by a single layer of floating row cover. Today we built better, stronger (read: snow crush-proof) framing for the cover and added a layer of plastic to the outside. Just the row cover alone kept things beautiful up until now, 2 snowfalls into the winter.

  • The snow got ahead of me and buried some bok choi and Brussels sprouts. What was I thinking? Too busy with the holidays…

    Enjoy the kale for as long as you can. It's our great love!
