call me mister green jeans
What a difference a few weeks of rain and sun make! We planted our tiny garden back in February, checked in on it a few weeks ago, but lately it’s really taken off. Yesterday, Nancy clipped the top off the tall kale just before it flowered, to add some “kale raab” to accent our soup for dinner, and we’ve been able to start clipping arugula and baby kale leaves for salads.
I’m curious to see if this small garden will grow fast enough to provide salad greens for the two of us all summer. At this point, it’s almost no work, with the greens growing thick enough to crowd out weeds and fast enough to keep ahead of the slugs and bugs.
