You know, spring greens, except purple:
This is my first cut of purple sprouting broccoli. Nice, but not enough for a meal really. But my purple Brussels sprouts are still growing away and in the last week or so the plants have produced lots of new fresh growth. The sprouts themselves were a bit of a disappointment this year. Not sure why: soil too fertile, soil not fertile enough, too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry – the usual things. So I cut off the top growth from the plants and threw that in the pot as well. Steam or boil for just a few minutes and it tastes wonderful. Spring purples: you’ll be seeing them on a fancy bistro menu any day now.
