So ... what you're saying is ... it's not 'B' for brain, afterall?
Thats what i figured, I have started them from seed also in red and pink shades.
A kind of kale? Can you eat it? Do rabbits eat it? Or deer? Never mind: its crinkles are wild!
I think we might be able to stretch things a bit, John, don't you?! Let 'B' be for Brassica, brain and. . . bohemian?
Hi Steve - yes, you recognized the frills as belonging to a cabbage. There was an extravaganza of pink ones in the field, too - they really are quite extraordinary creations. (You've grown them from seed - - - nice to think they grow in both NZ and the Midwest!).
Hello Mim - yes, they're a kind of kale. These ones (as far as I know, that is) are ornamental; amazingly complex and dilly plants. I suspect a hungry hare would find them irresistible, but they might be tough on a restaurant patron's plate?
Beautiful Brassica. Indeed.
