This is a journal of my small organic urban kitchen garden & large community garden plots. This blog includes home preserving, recipes & a little bit of our life. My husband calls the gardens Eden. He should know he is the cook here! We are located in eastern Pennsylvania in zone 6B.

This past Saturday, I finally harvested some of the overwintered Kale and Collards from the cold frame beds. I figured that I would harvest just the bigger leaves and that would be enough for dinner. As you can see, there were a lot more greens ready then I had thought!
I came in with this nice big colander full of greens!
There are Vates Collards, Lacinato Kale, Squire Kale and a few leaves of what I think must be Winter Red Kale. There is one plant in the bed which has light purple veins. I was having trouble with the Winter Red Kale germinating...but, I guess that one made it.
Total Harvest - 10.7 oz Collards - 3.8 oz Kale - 6.9 oz
