I just found another reason to eat kale! I was reading some fun facts about veggies the other day and apparently kale contains a nutrient that may boost brain function in people who are middle-aged or older! šŸ˜

Yes it is and i grow enough that in the fall iā€™ll cover it standing and pluck frozen leaveā€™s off till the snow gets too deep. Then i whack the plant and hang it upside down right out side the back door. We eat our own Kale from June thru January.
Last year we stripped off some leaves from the stem and froze them, no blanching just froze them and crumpled them up into large freezer bags to see how it did. We had Kale into March this year and will continue this going forward.

Well,

I'm having gai lan with beef & lentil soup and crackers so decided that I could ā€Šstand some funny news, bad news or good news about kale. Now, im hoping that kale isn't the only brassica with this nutrient.
