We had a long cold snap back in December...cold for our neck of the woods anyway. The temperature hovered below 30 for 3 days straight, and it got into the teens at night. Needless to say, almost everything in the garden died. The broccoli is trying to make a comeback...but the eggplant, beans, lettuce, and some of my herbs all succumbed to the bitter cold.
Thankfully, all the herbs bounced back except the basil (it's a warm weather herb), the onions, cilantro, and parsley are doing great...and the kale...well Lordy mercy. The kale barely flinched, and is going strong.
Add the chicken broth...
the wine and the kale...I know, it looks like a lot, but it'll wilt down, don't worry. And yes, I sampled the wine first...I mean you have to right? Don't forget to drink a little more along with the soup at dinnertime, lol!
