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.
