"The nicest thing about rain is that it stops.  Eventually."  Eeyore

A rainy day is a good day for stopping at Wealden to
so delicious and nutritious

green smoothies
(for your body and soul)
2 bananas
3 oranges
2 T lemon juice
1 bag spinnach
4 C cold water
blend on high until smooooth.

and there's more than just spinnach...

broccoli rabe (also known as rapini or broccoletti can be described as nutty, bitter, and pungent. It is a great source of vitamins A,C and K, as well as potassium, calcium, and iron.  A common preparation is sauteing with garlic over low heat 10-15 minutes.  

pac choy (or boc choy or leafy chinese cabbage) has gained popularity for its sweet, succulent stalks. It is a rich source of many vital phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. 
mizuna has been described as a "piquant, mild peppery flavor...slightly spicy, but less so than arugula." As a salad green mizuna can be steamed, boiled, stir-fried or used to complement other greens mixed together for a salad  Mizuna is packed with Vitamin A, Folate, and other fabulous phytochemicals (cancer fighting chemicals) such as glucosinolates. Try a mizuna salad with herbed goat cheese, orange wedges and a dressing of choice!

when the sun returns this week, 
plant your beautiful 
Wealden seedlings!
