Alaska is a big place and no blog could sum it up. This is my slice of life living in Homer, Alaska.

Still Picking Kale...
I am trying the experiment of leaving the kale in all winter and it is doing well. I am continuing to harvest it, though it is growing at a much slower rate than it was earlier. Even with temperatures dipping into the 20's at night, each day the frost melts off and the kale is just as tasty and firm. What is best of all though is that it is too cold for the slugs, so I no longer have to pick slugs off to get to my kale (eeeeew I know!).
Picked over row of kale
Half a row gave me a bowlful of curly-leafed kale for my favorite recipe: massaged kale
