Welcome David,

As I sit here eating my bowl of Kale and Potatoes I look forward to hearing what you have to share. Here in Vermont we're learning to stretch the season with double row covers - it is snowing and 30 and I still have kale and broccoli growing under cover - last year the cold hit too hard too soon and we didn't get much, but the year before we were picking kale into early January. It is hit and miss but with Global Weirding we figure it is worth trying, some years we'll get lucky and have winter greens and others we won't.

-Kelly

Good morning from downtown Denver David! It's cold and I'm dreaming of living the dream of some land and a FOOD LAB that I'd love to tell you a bit about. I don't quite have the totality of the DREAM on paper yet, but it's in my head. I'll try to share it with you before you finish up with the "EAT YOUR GREENS" segment here @ permies.com, where all are friends and lovers of green food and energy!

Cheers!
Vicki

welcome David !
greens yum , growing up eating mostly spinach and beet greens . I thought I knew my greens . gardening over the many years has introduced me to all sorts of greens with great flavors .( collards ,many types of kale,and chards ( chard is my current favorite for taste and production) sweet potato greens and most recently carrot tops. always interested in learning more . especially which greens are available to cook from plants with other useable parts that are non bitter .

Thanks for the nice welcome. Some very interesting information, blogs, ideas, dreams, imaginings,etc here at Permies forum. I am in north central Florida zone 9A but have spent most of the afternoon sadly harvesting a lot of tropical leaf crops because we have a hard freeze warning for tonight. Some for supper, some for freezing and some for drying. Moringa, chaya, Okinawan spinach, taioba, soko, amaranth, sweet potato greens, roselle, cranberry hibiscus all thinking Florida was warmer than this!

Late greeting, just to say how I appreciate the information you give, and what I have begun to read on your website.
I understand why you know about tropical plants!

I did not think I would come to the cooking forum, as I am into my rocket stove and more, but it was worth it.
And finally I have 2 important questions in mind, and I am going to ask them!

Congratulations Joshua and Markus!

Just got my book today--am very happy with some things in here:

--growing cold-hardy veggies in the winter is not just about growing cold-hardy veggies in the winter--it's about having them still be _fresh_ in the winter! so, you can let them do virtuall all of their growingin late fall and then they'll just be hanging out and surviving in the colder time, but staying fresh, so you can then harvest fresh in winter. Or maybe even bring them indoors for the end of their life and take them outdoors for a few hours right before you eat tmem if you feel you want them to get some fresh sun, then eat them and get hte nutritional benefit of fresh hyperlocal food!!! Oh, and not necessary to do a greenhouse, it can be a TEFA kind of thing as far as that goes. Total obviousness in hindsight but I just never thought of it.
--growing moringa--I feel a bit more confident I can do this! if I manage to get my paypal working again...something beyong the powers of a book on greens to ccomplish
-- you can eat scarlet runner bean leaves!!! my landlord always grows the damn things every year, then saves the beans and grows them again the next year. We get 0 food out of this whole process, and put a lot of work into it. but now--we can eat the leaves!!! i would never have thought of that, but it's so useful.

I love that the focus is on nutrition--the end goal I really want--am hoping there's more about wild greens or easy-to-grow things too. It's really desnsely packed with information.

Thanks so much for the gift of this book!
