heavenly blue


heavenly blues hold out 
then burst abundant in the late summer

Homegrown Kale Salad all year long

Kale salad...blessed with no freezes in sub-tropical key west, we can grow Kale year round. In fact one Kale plant can grow for years. Another perk of key west - Kale in the summer! I love a Kale salad with a simple lemon, apple cider vinegar, dijon and a fine olive oil dressing...with a bit of goat cheese...every day. feeling great!

food gardening in a boat...florida keys style with tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, papayas and a ladder to pick them with...love
