If I’m looking for leafy green vegetables right now, there are just two in the garden that have made it this far into the summer: the kale and the collards. The spinach, arugula and mizuna went to seed early on. The lettuce and mustard greens held out a little longer, but are gone now.
So, let’s hear it for these two heat resistant leafy greens! The collards (above) are a variety called ‘Vates,’ and the Kale (below) is ‘Toscano.’
