It tastes a bit like the smell of broccoli, actually.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Chard! I was just about to say that!

(No I wasn't. I was thinking Bok Choy...)

Looked like chard to me too.

The CSA lady guessed Collard Greens, but I think those are fluffier.

We had something like Bok Choi last week, RA, it was paler, tougher, and with thick white veins.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Wow. Someone was named after a cabbage.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17320 comments Mod
Well, he was named something nice. His last name was of the vegetable persuasion. I imagine his forefathers were greengrocers.


message 16: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Like Helmut Kohl.

mmmm-hmmm. Like that.


message 18: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Nice. I'm not sure of the semantic origin of my last name. I just know some of my ancestors were French grape harvesters/made wine.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments mine must have been donut makers

Marie It is collard greens! I have seen enough of those in my lifetime as my dad was constantly cooking them. He even grew them on his farm for a couple of years. :)
