A little bit of Spain in my garden

by Heidi Egerman August. 03, 2019 287 views

I bought some seeds when I was in Spain last fall while I was walking the Camino. I wasn’t positive what this was, but I was pretty sure it was a type of kale or collard greens that was used in a traditional soup called Caldo Gallego served in the Galicia region of northern Spain.

Here is a description that I found online.

Kale Galega de Folhas Lisas.

Smooth leaf green kale from Portugal. Plants are very large and vigorous. The Franchi agent in Portugal claims it is the best-tasting kale. Tender and delicious leaves, reminiscent of collards, by size and color, but leaves are more delicate in flavor, and less coarse. Very pretty and a good producer.

I love the tones in the first one. I am curious to see what your thoughts of how they taste when you harvest them.

While the green tint really stand out in #2, I prefer #1 photo. In B&W its electrifying. At first glance I thought it to be cabbage.

Thanks Camellia. Yes, the monochrome really shows the contrast. Some posts did call it a Cabbage that doesn’t form a head.

+1grinning+1 The mono #1 shows the structures of the veins dramatically!
I like #2, as well, but in a different way.....
Both excellent!
