Picking Kale for the Soup Kitchen

We harvested about half of our back kale crop this morning.

We filled ten 30 gallon bags in about 1 hour. Kale is so easy to pick when it’s coming out to clear the patch for the next crop. We simply pulled the whole plant, gave a twist and separated the leafy tops from the roots and stems, then the leaves go in the bag and the rest goes to compost.

We put all the bags in the back of the truck and headed to the Joseph House in Salisbury, Maryland.

Joseph House Crisis Center

The Crisis Center provides emergency and on-going assistance for individuals and families in need. It opened in 1984 to serve the poor from the Lower Shore counties of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia.

The fresh food we bring is always appreciated. They provide food to roughly 1200 people every month!

They even grow a small garden too!
