I picked more distinctly odd purple-tinged Romanesco Broccoli. They look more like strange sea creatures than a vegetable. So far I have had just as many lime-green ones as purple-tinged ones.
I had thought that the seeds I had purchased were for a lime-green form only. While they look very weird, they just taste like cauliflower but perhaps a little crunchier?
I have picked the first of the Red Drumhead cabbages, more broccoli side shoots and the first of the Brussels sprouts.
This is the first time I've grown sprouts and I am not sure that I am doing a good job. The sprouts are quite small and not very firm but I am sure they will be delicious steamed.
The rain has also swelled the celery stalks (which I didn't photograph) - at the moment I have more celery than I know what to do with. Celery soup perhaps? Is there such a thing?
