our rows of rape greens grew exceptionally well this fall. Knowing a serious cold snap would pay us a visit this week, I harvested most of the rape, as well as kale and swiss chard, and cooked several batches of what we call "green soup." Green soup is a collection of any available greens cooked down with vegetable broth, onions, garlic, and a handful of rice, then pureed into a smooth blend. Add a splash of lemon juice, paprika, and salt for excellent taste.
This is our story, in real time and in photos. It is neither unique nor unusual nor extraordinary. But it is our story.
