Kale chips in the making! These varieties are my homegrown Blue Curly kale, Red Russian kale and Tuscan kale. I also grow Curly Scarlet kale however to be honest they are not doing as well as the others this year. I started them in coir pots as an experiment and I'm not entirely happy with them. The benefit of using coir pots was that they are incredibly easy and quick to sow seeds into. However I have found the roots seem to be struggling to break through the thin outer lining of the coir pots and so they can't grow out into the soil. Also the blackbirds were digging up the coir pots when they were planted out and throwing them around everywhere which didn't help. I have gone back to they way I usually sow seeds and that is either direct into the beds or in punnets until I have the space to plant them out. I also netted to stop those pesky blackbirds!
Hand made borage tortelli with parsley & dill pesto and borage flowers topped w cheese dust. Everything straight from my garden. Maybe I'll serve this at the farm lunch at @greengategarden, it's just so delicious!
