In the previous post I was pondering the identity of a plant I'd seen recently but didn't know. Well, when I was visiting Durango (in southwestern Colorado) last weekend, there it was for sale at the local Farmer's Market. The young guy manning the booth told me that it is, indeed, a type of kale. It's called either "black kale" or ---and I love this---"dinosaur kale." It does have an odd, prehistoric look. Do you think kids would be more excited about eating kale with a name like that?
