|That's him! I had a few other photos that I shared at the beginning. People like seeing children pictures at the beginning of my lectures.|

|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.|

|This one looks very much like a kale!|

|That is an unusually attractive mustard.|

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