Greens
Carol Deppe, in her delightful book The Tao of Vegetable Gardening: Cultivating Tomatoes, Greens, Peas, Beans, Squash, Joy and Serenity, (Chelsea Green, 2015) introduces us to her new way of growing cooking greens: Eat-All Greens. Carol grows these by broadcasting seed of one of her carefully chosen greens crops in a small patch. When it reaches 12” tall, she cuts the top 9” off for cooking, leaving the tough-stemmed lower part, perhaps to grow for a second cut, or to be returned to the soil. It’s best to sow each kind in a separate patch, even if you want mixed greens later, as different crops grow at different rates. I wanted to try this idea in Virginia, where the climate is fairly different from the Pacific Northwest where Carol lives.
