Hi, Kevin here. We’re into the second week of the A to Z Challenge, and in case you’re just visiting, I’m a six year old ginger and white guinea pig. This blog was started by Fred and George, Mummy’s very first guinea pigs. She writes books about them too.
Our A to Z Challenge theme is “Our Favourite Things”
We love kale. It’s one of the plants in the cabbage family, but it’s much nicer than cabbage. We like it better than broccoli and cauliflower, too. And pak choi is okay, but I wouldn’t say we like it. Mummy grows a variety called Cavolo Nero or something like that, in the garden. It grows all through winter so we can have some fresh leaves even then. We don’t get many things from the garden in winter. Kale, celeriac leaves, maybe chard or strawberry leaves, if we’re lucky. Kale’s delicious.
It has to be sown in the spring, so we watch it grow when we’re out in our runs during the summer. The stalks get too hard to eat, so we ignore them. Grass is much nicer – in summer.
Tomorrow it’s letter L.
PS. Mummy has a recipe for linguine with kale pesto (I don’t know what that is). She says she’ll put it in the comments if anybody wants it.
