I bet for some new CSA-ers (because I had this thought myself) the first few harvest weeks in late May-Early June, seemed overwhelmingly packed with leaves, leaves, and more leaves. Sure I can do spinach, I can do lettuce….but kale? The thought hadn’t come to my mind that the first crops to harvest are the leafy plants.
The facts are that leafy veggies like the cooler temperatures in the spring and they dig the moisture (hence the nice juicy leaves.) But what to do with all collards and kale and bok choi…oh my!
So for some of you first timers out there (like myself) here is an awesome website that lets you in on some good facts about these lucscious leaves.
