A beautiful green cauliflower, Romanesco, sometimes called Romanesco broccoli, a cross between several heirloom cauliflower varieties. We harvested our first head yesterday and it became the main ingredient in a popular English dish, Cauliflower Cheese with Leeks.

And blue potatoes, sorry, only the flowers for now! (If you look closely you will see scallions and lettuce planted in the lower terrace)

Remember Super Moon tomorrow night, be sure to toast the celestial event in your own way, I shall have a glass of wine in hand!

  1. The cabbage picture is lovely, and I love the tiny tomatoes. I could eat the whole bush full. I’d love to see blue toms when they arrive. I want to try and get a picture of the super moon.

  2. Great photos.

    I particularly love the water droplets on the Savoy Cabbage.

    Sometimes I think the simplest subjects make the most beautiful images. It’s almost as though the subject takes on a much grander appearance and texture.
