Meet the Beyonce of kale!
I was wondering a month ago who was alive under all that snow… what gruesome green creature might emerge.
And here we have it: Destiny’s kale.
She’s a survivor! She’s not goin’ give up!
I have a lot to tell about the garden right now. About rich, moist, poison-free soil and dozens of wee kale plants (went a little kale-crazy at the farm stand). About lettuce and seed trays and sun and shade. And a little boy making mud pits with the hose and looking for worms. It’s going to be an awesome, veggie-filled summer, I can feel it! My first.
But for now, I’ll just honor this lone surviving kale plant from last year’s ridiculous late, late planting experiment. I truly can’t believe anything could survive under all those feet of relentless snow last winter. And spring up, looking just as good as all of its fresh-from-the-greenhouse neighbors.
I put a commemorative stake by her, so she doesn’t get lost in the shuffle this summer.
Looks like I’ll eat something I planted last fall yet!
