seedling update and quick kale chips


My seedlings are getting big. Some of the tomatoes are getting too big, actually, and I'm still hardening them off. Hopefully, they won't become too leggy or root-bound before I transplant them. The biggest plants in this picture are tomatoes. The others are leeks, pepper plants, and various herbs.

More tomato and pepper plants. I also have some basil and eggplant outside, hardening off at this very moment. See the arrow? That's sage! I finally got one sage seed to sprout out of the scores, maybe even hundreds, that I sowed. But all it takes is one. :)

All this seed starting makes me hungry, and kale chips hit the spot. I'm not a huge kale fan, but kale chips are a whole different beast. Break up the leaves into 2" pieces; toss them with some olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne; and bake for up to 20 minutes in a 375 degree oven (watch carefully that they don't burn, since ovens vary).
