The last few days have been brassica-centric (Brassicaceae being the family of that most redolent group of vegetables, cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and many others). I’ve been admiring the kale and the purple cabbage out in the field in particular — the kale because the plants, having been periodically harvested, now look like funny little crinkly palm trees, and the cabbage because look at it, it’s pretty.
