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!
