‘Tis the season of kale. Famers along the west coast of America are harvesting this cool-weather crop right now.
Whether you prefer a green or purple hue, this leafy plant of the cabbage family is high in vitamin C, vitamin K and calcium. In recent years, various forms of kale have become wildly popular: kale chips, salad & soup + stand alone sides: steamed or seared. Kale is not only versatile but also inexpensive.
This hearty plant is relatively easy to care for. If you love the taste, try growing your own!
