After the show....
Monday, 09 Jul 12 Sunny 27°C / 80°F
No gardening all weekend (fri, sat, sun) except to harvest kale on Friday after setting up for my weekend art/craft show.
With it, I made ‘massaged’ kale salad. Mixed olive oil, honey and lemon juice ground cayenne, salt and pepper. In total, this dressing amounted to approximately 1 tablespoon. I wisked it thoroughly, julienned the de-ribbed kale leaves and added it to the dressing and then massaged for about 1 minute….actually, less. Added finely sliced red onion and pumpkin seeds and tossed. I prepared this on Saturday after the show and my overnight guest and I loved it! This inspires me to grow a couple of plants of a more tender variety like maybe red russian. Does anyone have a recommendation for a tender leaf kale?
I’m on a kale kick. Trying to get brave about adding it to my occasional yogurt/fruit smoothie.
My ‘show’ was a a ‘reasonable’ paycheck; I got lots of great feedback from attendees and as a bonus, was asked to be the show’s ‘Artist of the Year’ for 2013. Show co-ordinator(s) took lots of images of my work and will use them for all show promotions.
I spoke to a fellow craftsperson who is a gardener and we frequently compare notes. He mentioned that his onions were small and wondered if he planted them to closely together. When he showed me the distance, I didn’t think so but thought the rainy, more-cloudy-fewer-sunny-days might be the culprit. As I was saying this to him it occurred to me that this might affect our garlic crop since garlic is in the allium family. Does anyone else have thoughts on this. I know, I can just go and pull one plant and get an idea but I thought I’d ask if this is a reasonable conclusion.
