this recipe for optiko cabbage is a favorite around my sister kathleens house. its great. other people eat it raw. beet thinnings in the salad mix tomorrow. should be a small beet on the end - eat all. it is the "year of the carrot" and that also means the year of the beet. learn to like beets. it always rains memorial day weekend and i hope that holds true this year. think rain - make it happen.
