Omgoodness. What is it with so many of us coming down with cancer these days? Not cool. Not cool at all. Something must be done.
Enter Lacinto kale, otherwise known as one of the top "super foods", cancer fighters, and The Green Thing That Makes An Appearance Once A Day Now On Our Table. This stuff is delicious, quick to cook, and practically grows itself. Really.
While we're scanning real estate sites and hoping to buy a small country place soon, for now we're living in the city, about three blocks from the college where Josh is in administration. Our little fenced yard already had deep existing flower beds, but we've added two more and are planting them full of food. And a few flowers and herbs. But mostly food. And honestly, they're quite pretty. I caught Josh out there last night taking pictures of our cabbage and posting it to Facebook. Me thinks I've won this city boy over with my foodie ways. *wink*
If you have the means, hop on over to Seed Savers and snag some seeds so you can be ready to plant in a few months. Or look for it in the store or farmer's market or CSA or wherever you find produce. I promise you'll be glad you did.
It's time we show this cancer nonsense who's boss, eh?
Happy weekend! -Brin
Update: Oh! If you're looking for a good tutorial on how to deal with all your super kale, go here. This is how I learned to do it and the clearest I've seen it explained. Enjoy!
