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.

Sometimes it takes a village, sometimes you just need a hard working daughter!

As we continue our work with the @heirloomcollards project and our #collards2020 trials, we thought we'd jump into testing out some Tree Collards from @projecttreecollard
While tree collards are often rooted from cuttings, we like starting from seeds because we'll get some variation in the genetics and will be able to select the plants that do best in our region. Which is what we're all about - better food, regionally grown.
We're growing 'Green' 'Purple' and 'Merritt'.
I've got about 30 seeds left of 'Merritt' and am going to send them to a randomly selected Patreon supporter on Monday. So if you've been thinking of supporting then do it now!! Link in our profile.
I'd also like to shout out to @projecttreecollard for quickly resending extra seeds when some arrived crushed by the mail. Great customer service for a small company.

We're a full trial site for the @heirloomcollards project. That means we have 20 varieties in the ground!

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 ❤️
