The kale flowers were eaten as a spring treat. Kale doesn't give much in the way of flowers, but what they give is tasty. I still have a handful of plants out there in bloom. I'll have to cut some down again.
I've been picking cilantro regularly. Not much all at once but some here and there. I used this in a recipe that called for cilantro and coriander. Two different tastes from the same plant. Though the coriander was harvested last year.
And they were put in a dish of curried sweet potatoes. Though I used this recipe as a starting point, I made it an easier one. I swear that one would have taken forever to make and it was asking for three pans. I used one pan and it took about 20 minutes. Vegetable dishes shouldn't take forever to make or I just won't make them on a regular basis. I also don't have whole Indian spices in my spice drawers only ground. Yes it would probably be better with whole spices, but corners have to be cut to use what is on hand. Either way it was delicious.
The fruit tally changed last week, as I added the additional fruit trees on order. A pear tree is coming from Stark Bros and was $35.94. Two apple trees are coming from Miller and they are $63.65.
