Is that even possible, you might ask? Well until now, I didn't really think it was either. But this year, well I might have done it.
Just this week I found myself planting another 2 varieties of kale (which makes 3 types now- curly, tuscan and a new-to-me colourful edible variety). That's when I started to add them all up and realised, that's a whole lotta greens.
Apart from the kale, there's the range of silverbeet/chard I've got going on. Regular, bright lights and red leafed. Then there's regular English spinach and perpetual spinach, wild rocket and regular rocket as well as the asian greens (bok choy, pak choy and wombok). Let's not forget the 2 varieties of cabbages I've planted as well.
And lastly, the 4 (or was it 5?) varieties of heirloom lettuces I've put in?
I almost lost count. Could that really be 20 different types of leafy greens?? Did I miss any? Yes, I think we're definitely sorted in that department.
Hopefully the bucketloads of peas and broccoli I've planted will even it all out a bit. Perhaps I should have put in a few more beetroots and carrots as well?
Hmmm, apparently it's going to be a winter of salads and green smoothies. The challenge will be on to find new and exciting ways to cook them up.
Sheesh, let's just hope I haven't jinxed myself! Are you listening caterpillars, slugs and cutworms? Honestly, there's nothing to see here. You can move along now.
