We are soooo lucky in the Pacific Northwest! For lots of reasons, but in particular because we can grow so much food over the winter. This week, we’ve eaten carrots, parsnips, cauliflower, Purple Sprouting broccoli, parsley, chives, sorrel, thyme, rosemary, oregano, kale, Swiss chard, arugula and beets out of the garden. And I’ve discovered that as much as I love kale anytime, my favorite season for it is spring! Not the leaves, but the luscious little flower buds, or raab.

|Russian Kale really going to seed. It was about 8' tall!|
|Spigariello--most of the flowers have been cut,|
but it's making more everyday.
