Family Farm For Reals
Our harvest included kale, lettuce, spinach, radish and onions. We sold out of the onions and radishes, but have some kale left. We're making kale and spinach lasagna tomorrow for a family feast.
The biggest highlights today were the Palisade cherries that sold out at a stall just down the lane from us. People were lined up first thing this morning to get the fruit. They were a hot commodity and gone before noon.
We had a handful of previous customers come by to tell us the plants they bought from us are thriving. That was cool news to hear. We've gingered these plants in our living room since the beginning of the spring so it was reassuring to hear they're doing so well for other people, too.
We're having kale chips tonight for dinner. Make some. They're incredibly easy and addictive.
1 bunch of kale
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray or rub oil on a cookie sheet.
Wash, dry and destem kale along central vein.
Tear apart kale into two inch pieces.
Place on sheet and season to taste.
Cook until kale crisps and browns up. It happens quickly. Keep an eye on it. Then enjoy!
