King Cole

September 22, 2010

The cole crops are in the garden.

This year’s selection includes broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts (because I love my wife), a couple of cabbage varieties, some chard and even some turnip greens. (All are of the mustard family and are descendants of wild cabbage originating in the Mediterranean area. The Texas Aggies say so- check the link above.)

Now that you are as amazed as I was with this incredibly interesting information I’ve used as an excuse to post some pictures, here are those pictures:

I mixed all of them into 3 beds and parts of a couple others. Which is which will become apparent as the plants continue to develop; I neglected to document what I put where…..

(The low green plants in the middle of this bed are New Zealand Spinach, not a cole crop if you were wondering… not a true spinach either… but you weren’t wondering. Or were you?)

Speaking of spinach, the few seeds that germinated a month ago when it briefly cooled off are doing well as young plants. The rest are still sitting in the ground refusing to emerge.

And finally, and unrelated picture that I just wanted to post because it looked nice and was 100% from the ground behind cohutt’s fence. 😉 I almost missed it, there was an extremely brief window of opportunity. 🙂 🙂

>> King of the Garden Lima, Christmas Lima (the purple ones) , Brandywine tomato, German butterball, french fingerling and purple viking potatoes all with a little window parsley added
