Kale (Winterbor variety) seedlings in the garden, next to green onions and garlic. Temps continue to be cold, which is said to benefit kale, the colder the better to keep bitterness away. What to do with kale? I use mine to make Green Smoothies, a healthful drink made with yogurt, bananas, pineapple and kale (or spinach), all blended together; sweet and yummy, like a milkshake. This is true!
