Today at 1PM EST board member Chef Ashleigh Shanti (@foodordeath_) will be presenting a 3-way collard salad demo with greens from the #collards2020trials. Straight after Chris Smith (@blueandyellowmakes) and Ashleigh will go into a live collard tasting and culinary evaluation and there will be a Q&A open to everyone! All available to watch for free via @culinarybreedingnetwork YouTube Live. It's going to be so much fun.
Huge thanks to the @heirloomcollards project partners that helped make this entire week of collards possible: @workingfoodgnv @seed_savers_exchange @southernexposureseed and our fantastic host @culinarybreedingnetwork

Just casually seeding 21 varieties of collards for a collaborative and far reaching trial (the trial is 20 varieties, but I snuck in another one that Yanna Fishman has been working with!!). Proud to be working with @seed_savers_exchange @workingfoodgnv @southernexposureseed @melbelle206 @culinarybreedingnetwork and a lot of citizen scientists across the USA.
Also, big thanks to @dirtcraftorganics. They donated a couple of totes of seed starting soil in spring and I have enough for fall planting. Great to know there collards are getting a great start in a locally made soil mix!

It's looking like nearly 100% germination after just a few days. @seed_savers_exchange did a great job expanding seed if these rare varieties, and now they've been shared across the country. Really looking forward to seeing how these 20 collard varieties grow.
I also want to start looking for Asheville-based chefs who may want to collaborate on the food side of these trials.

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 ❤️

Here's a selection of the collards we're growing as part of the #heirloomcollardproject and their #collards2020 variety trial of 20 different #heirloomcollards
There is already some beautiful diversity showing up, and it looks like we're on track for an early September transplant (despite some unexpected storms, uninvited cabbage loopers, and a stinkbug or two).
Excited to see these greens grow up.

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!
