vegetable pleasures

Categories EdiblesPosted on

One of the surprises of vegetable gardening is the sheer aesthetic delight to be found in the way vegetables and herbs look as they grow. This spring the red kohlrabi has been especially pleasing. The perkiness of the leaves, the way rainwater pearls in them, the combination of the purple veins and stems with the glaucous leaves, not least the subtle symetry of its growth have been so satisfying, even before the harvest. Worth growing as an ornamental!
