    Kale – Dazzling Blue (Organic)

    Cavolo Nero-type kale of dazzling blue and green coloured leaves with exceptional pink midribs. This showy kale was bred by Hank Keogh from Avoca Farm in Oregon, USA. He back-crossed ‘Lacinato rainbow’ with the Wild Garden Seed ‘Lacinato’. In looks it resembles a Cavolo Nero kale and it has stunning blue, green and pink colours. The leaves are savoyed and have underturned margins, the plant grows upright and is very cold-hardy – more so than any other Cavolo Nero type kales. Tender and tasty, great for sautéing, steaming or finely chopped in a salad. A solid vegetable for the home or market garden.

    Asian Greens – Mizuna (Organic)

    A variety of mustard greens. Mizuna is a vigorous grower, producing an abundance of stalks with green deeply serrated leaves. Mizuna has a mild piquant almost peppery taste and can be used raw in salads and also as a cooked green. It is highly resistant to the cold and can be grown throughout the winter, making those cold, short days and long nights feel healthier and a little bit spicier! The pretty yellow sprays of flowers can also be a bright addition to a salad with the same mustardy hit.

    Cima di Rapa – San Marzano (Organic)

    A really easy to grow broccoli alternative producing tender flowering shoots around 60 days from sowing.

    Cima Di Rapa (also known as broccoli raab), is actually botanically a type of turnip rather than a broccoli. As such it is very quick to grow and unfussy in terms of its water and nutrient requirements.

    The flowering shoots are harvested like sprouting broccoli and if you take care not to remove the lower two leaves you can get a few cuts off them.

    In Italy there are many different varieties of Cima Di Rapa, maturing at different times and with different culinary uses.

A productive plant, it reaches 90cm in height and can be harvested throughout the winter becoming sweeter after a frost. The tender young leaves are great in salads and larger leaves are attractive as well as delicious. This kale is so tasty you can eat it on its own, but it’s also a perfect addition to smoothies, salads and stir fries. You can get in the habit of adding it to most meals! In Scotland, kale used to be a mainstay of the traditional diet. So much so that to be “off one’s kail” means to feel too ill to eat.

    Chard – White (Organic)

    A classic variety with glossy dark green leaves and thick white stems. If you need a leafy vegetable that ‘just grows’ Swiss Chard is a garden essential. From two sowings, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn, you can have chard almost all year round. In Fred’s words “Chard is just always there, even if you don’t want it, it’s still there”.
    This variety is robust, vigorous and very productive. You can use the stem and the leaf separately as they have different cooking qualities. Ronja’s favourite recipe is with the whole plant. Sauté onions in some oil with a bit of chilli and the Swiss chard, add some cooked white butter beans, serve with cheese on top – just delicious!
