Day 320: Sprouts!

image

After only three days the little kale and cabbage have sprouted.
Look at the life erupting from the earth here!! It is an amazing amount of effort that goes into emerging from the dirt…at least in my opinion.

They have started stretching to one side. Yearning for as much sunlight as possible. Of course I want to move the seed tray every time I see them leaning, but I must hold back.

No word from the tomatoes yet, but I will be patient. They are fairly fast to sprout.
This part of gardening always makes me want to grab an old battered umbrella and make the plants grow higher. I want my plants to grow just like they do for Totoro (forest spirit) and the little girls in the cartoon. Wonderment

Good green post for St. Patrick’s Day!
I hope you are wearing or growing your green today.
Take care—Kat

Day 151: Franken-Pizza

image

Pizza I helped make while in IL visiting my family.
My brother had never had Cheddar or kale on pizza before. He and my sister both agreed it was bomb.

Kale cooks up similarly to spinach and it can be used in so many things.
Just this summer I used it in potato soup, quiche, pizza, omelets, and I can’t remember what else.

Kale and onions are a match that begins from the garden and ends up in my frying pan. Can you tell that I have fallen in love with kale this summer?

We also put diced tomatoes, onions aand mushrooms on it. My brother is vegetarian so we accomodated for him.
