If you could grow just one vegetable I’d highly recommend Kale. Its one of my favourites, partly because it is so versatile but, also because it is so good for you.
I’ve been growing Kale for years and I have tried almost all of them. There are lots of varieties you can grow – Cavolo Nero also known as Tuscan Black, Red Russian, White Russian, Dwarf Blue, Red Bor, Hanover Salad, Red Ursa, and Curled Scotch just to name a few. My personal favourite is Thousand head. It is huge – see!
I brought some in last night for our dinner and two leaves were more than enough. Chickie got some too!
My girls also love it. I plant it around so that there is always some on hand for them. You always know when they’ve been getting stuck into the Kale because their yolks become really rich and dark.
Thousand Head Kale – Go on, try it.
