Kale Harvest

Matron over at Down on the Allotment is hosting Matron's Worldwide Veggie Show 2009.
I'm entering this photo of my kale leaves. To join in, take a picture of 6 veggies of similar size and email to her at She will be judging the photos on July 14th.

They were chosen from this large harvest of kale that I picked last week before I left town for vacation. It was almost 12 oz of kale. I stripped the plants down pretty good leaving only a few smaller inner leaves because I knew I wouldn't be there to attack the cabbage moth caterpillars for the next week. I wanted to give them less surface area to eat on. We'll see if it worked when I return later this week.

Your Kale harvest looks great. I have tuscano kale growing in my window box, such a nice looking plant. I have yet to get the courage to try it though, kale kind of scares me :-)
