Harvesting Kale

A year after the Cavalo Nero was planted out I’m starting to harvest the seeds

From the initial flowers

A mass of flowers and pods

To seed pods forming

To the seed pods – still green and unripe

To the stage where the seeds are starting to dry on the plant

Some seeds ready for picking and drying

A seed pod and it’s seeds

And now it starts all over again

VARIETY: – Nero Di Toscana, orginally from Real Seeds
