So many colors of collards 💜 💚 💜

It`s been a while since I checked on the collards and I was a little nervous given lows of 8F and pretty consistent freezing temps. There was definitely some damage, but a majority of the collards were ALIVE 💚

Some Sunday morning collard harvesting ahead of #CollardWeek, which kicks off tomorrow with Michael Twitty (@thecookinggene).
Ashleigh Shanti (@foodordeath_) and Chris Smith (@blueandyellowmakes) will be diving into some of the culinary traits of the 21 #heirloomcollards straight after Ashleigh`s cooking demo next Thursday!
Big thanks to @frannytacy and Mike for helping with the harvest ❤️

Well, the results are in from our goat taste test. They have equal preference for all 21 collard varieties.
This is actually very upsetting; I`m walking around the field a little despondent. They looked SO beautiful.
Resilience! I`m going to clean them up, cover them up, and with a little luck we`ll have good regrowth to resume the trial.
Sharing some candid shots of Chef Ashleigh Shanti as we filmed a 4-way Collard Salad demonstration for Collard Week. I was lucky enough to take home the `demonstration` and it was delicious. Very excited to share the video during #collardweek, after which there will be a live Q&A with Ashleigh. Register for free via @heirloomcollards.

21 varieties of collards for the @heirloomcollards project. Photographed by @yondering_ during a @sowtrueseed workday! Each bunch was delivered to @foodordeath_ in preparation for a film shoot later today.

Tree Collard seedlings are looking happy and healthy as we head towards some cooler temps this weekend. Once these plants are grown and we can choose the best suited ones, we`ll be able to share cuttings!
