Garden greens

I am enjoying an abundance of spinach, lettuce, and kale right now. I pick a fresh salad for lunch every day, but I realize there are still more greens than we can keep up with here. The Farmers Market doesn't start for another month, so we'll be on a green diet here.

Kale and spinach, before, freshly picked.

Kale and spinach after. It really shrinks, but it's good with sesame seeds, pine nuts, and fresh ground pepper.

Looks wonderful! Although now I remember that I forgot pine nuts in my coop order-dang it anyhow!

I agree with manerva, it looks dee-lish. Nothing better than fresh greens. I'll take some :)

Manerva- I always wondered if the pines around here provided edible nuts.

PO Patricia- They are great. Hope to have a good fall crop too.

How lucky for you though!

I'm trying to simplify, do more myself, its hard though. I need to put more thought into it.

Nice to meet you, Deb.
