A Happy Easter to all of you!
Good thing we held off early planting in that false Spring we had lately... the temps are back into the twenties at night. Will hold off to plant at the traditional time of mid May... (N. MN).
Interesting chat with my dad about 'creasy' greens aka 'creasies, upland cress, winter cress .... he remembers them from his childhood. Maybe I can find some seeds and plant some for him - evidently it is as easy to grow as spinach, but more cold tolerant.
At the first hint of spring in the Appalachian Mountains, folks start looking for creasy greens. They are the earliest of any of the wild greens, often poking through the snow, and although traditionally hunted by foragers they are now grown commercially. Creasy greens are usually cooked long, like kale, mustard or turnip greens but they are equally good raw in a fresh salad (from davesgarden.com)
