Had the privileged of meeting Dave today, when he came to speak to the Magnolia Garden Club in Beaumont. Betsy (piksihk) was there also.

This is a "two-fer" photo. Cutest little boy and biggest kale I've ever seen! It's really beautiful.

We were in line at Whole Foods last night, and the guy in front of us was telling me how he prepares kale (he had a huge bag of it). Then the check-out clerk added her recipe prep for kale. And finally the bagger began to tell us how to char it first. DH said he still wouldn't eat it, but I will.

Actually Sandi, that is a mustard green! It volunteered right there so we let it grow all summer long. It was a beautiful specimen and we enjoyed it. There were a few smaller ones here and there.

Mustard green volunteer!? I can't even recognize kale from mustard greens, from chards! Great, I'll never be a vegetable gardener. I'll just have to admire others.

We enjoyed watching it all year. Eventually it bloomed and we saved the seeds from it. This year we have a volunteer or two coming up in that same area.

I bought the seeds for this years and years ago as "ruffled mustard".
You can google and see some plants, but I can't find seeds or a cultivar name at all Shrug!

It is lovely, and I use it as a garnish as well instead of Kale. Thumbs up A welcome volunteer.
