Dark bees and Russian kale
Russian kale survived and fed us through the cold winter. Now in full flower, with millions of yellow petals, I’m told it’s a prolific self-seeder. That’s good because the northern dark bees (apis mellifera mellifera) love it. They’re also doing a good job with the imminent strawberry harvest and perpetuating the dominance of chives in the herb garden.
