At the risk of getting off to a late start this season, we waited until the end of March to plant our leaf vegetables (kale, Swiss chard, collards). Fortunately, Gaia bestowed favor upon us, and the season has been highly conducive for growing leaf vegetables here at the Veggie-Bed.

GAIA SHOWED US FAVOR

Greens are high-yielding vegetables that grow well in a small area. We have picked a flat of greens every three days during the last six weeks.

CHOPPED, WASHED, BLANCHED, AND STORED

The greens are chopped, washed, blanched, and stored in the freezer for later use.
