The Kale Fairy showered me with her largess yesterday. One gallon of kale, one of chard, one of lettuce, a pound or more of green beans, four bulbs of fennel, and a zucchini the size of my thigh (and I don't have dainty thighs). Oh and a big bunch of parsley.

The lettuce, I admit, I fed directly to the chickens because it has gone bitter in the heat and I don't have the heart to tell the kale fairy so. The kale I gave to my houseguests to take home with them - some of it. Some of it I froze. I now have a winter's supply of kale in the freezer, I believe.
The rest is clogging up my fridge. There are now about eight squash on the counter. Ditto cucumbers. Ah, well, it's summer. Everybody's in the same boat.
