The Scotch kale plants look like palm trees these days.
Well, this one looks something like a palm tree, too!
It is kale. Portuguese kale, "Tronchuda Beira." I'd never eaten nor grown these plants until this year. There are only about 8 or 10 plants & they have been real easy. Obviously, the proper ingredient in Portuguese kale soup!
and, you thought i was only crazy for Asian greens . . .
