I also mention the kale that I’m growing on my roof deck (which is now inside thanks to the frost in Dallas!).  I’ll talk in detail about my super-cool hydroponic growing system in a future post, but if you want more information or to buy your own, you can always check out my Tower Garden website!

And last, as I was looking for pictures of kale, I found this sign in the grocery store, which struck me as funny.  “Probably the healthiest thing in produce”??  Something about that phrase just makes me laugh!

    Kale is one of the great 2014 additions to our staple diet – in salads, baked as chips, sautéed and added into pretty much anything we cook … it is a really great way to get loads of great nutrients. Great video 🙂

    I think it’s the “probably” that’s funniest. It makes it sound like it was written by a 22 year old assigned to the produce department. I can picture him in my mind.
    Love kale, I use it in smoothies a lot.
