Greens That Beat the Heat

Collards

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.’

  1. I grow Vates and they are amazing plants and make amazing dishes. Growing some of your own food is one of the most rewarding things there is.
