Green Kale

Kale and Parsley
The idea of growing kale appealed to me because it survives in cold weather. It has been three years that I tried growing kale. Every year, I succeed. It is hardy and easy to care for.

Here, one of my few kale plants still supply me with leaves for salad or for steaming. I harvest the leaves right before preparation or cooking. I noticed the last few leaves I cut off tasted sweeter. I have just learned today that frost actually enhances the flavor as the frost helps transform kale's starch into natural sugars. 

I hope my kale continues to survive and bring me more leaves. . . Oh, and look at my parsley around it.  I am thinking of making some Kale-berry-parsley-banana smoothie with this recipe. Now, if only I convince Paul to drink this 5-star-rating kale smoothie. It is hard enough to make him eat kale, let alone drink it.

Have you tried a green smoothie you like?

We grow kale in our garden and eat the tender young leaves in salads, mixed with other greens. Lovely!
Many thanks for contributing to the Friday Greens meme.
