12 Flats of Greens & Cabbage

This is our temporary nursery area.  There is some shade, breeze and it’s fun to watch the chickens while working.

Varieties planted:  Two varieties of pac choi (same as bok choy) – Black Summer which is a green variety and Red Choi which is a red variety;  Chinese kale which is also called Chinese broccoli; and a variety of cabbage.

We’ve also planted Toscano Kale recently directly in the greenhouse.  It is also known as “dinasour” kale.  Give it a try if you haven’t.  A nice dark green that is full of vitamins and minerals.  Great raw or cooked.

Most of these greens can be eaten raw by washing and drying.  Take a leaf and roll up your favorite sandwich filling in it.  Or roll up a small amount of salad with a little dressing and enjoy.  Crunchy – tasty – no need for bread!
