all in the family
I planted a whole bunch of green cabbage in the garden because I love it, especially sauteed in butter with fresh corn and lots and lots of thyme-delicious!
Over the past few weeks I've noticed that my green cabbage does not look like my red cabbage, the leaves are longer the plants tighter etc, and then today I finally figured out why. It's not cabbage, it's cauliflower!!!
Oops! They're in the same plant family and as seedlings look exactly the same. I must have mislabeled them.
This would be no problem, since I love cauliflower and we still have plenty of time to plant cabbage to get a fall crop (cabbage can even take a frost :) ) except I also planted a whole bunch of cauliflower! It's starting to come in now, so for the next few weeks we're going to have cauliflower coming out of our ears.
Anyone got any good recipes?
